According to the author, he has attempted to provide an account of the anatomy, biology, pathology, epidemiology and control of the parasites that affect the health of domesticated animals, and according to the reviewer he has succeeded well. This book is an amplification of one aspect of parasitism discussed in general in the author's well-known monograph (1951). The parasitism of helminths, arthropods and protozoa at the expense of British farm stock is thoroughly covered. The veterinarian, the farmer, the livestock disease control agency, the teacher and student of biology, comparative pathology, epidemiology and preventive medicine can find here a precise and informative description of the parasite in its zoological setting. It recommends itself both as a text and as a reference book.

The illustrative material in this volume is spectacular. The drawings, of which there are almost 500, have set a standard in their illustrative quality. In a simple manner they reveal the characteristic features of the parasites.
