Abstract

This 6th edition of an outstanding textbook has been extensively revised, brought up-to-date and new material added. The extensive literature of parasitology has been thoroughly covered making the bibliography one of the most valuable features of the book. As in prior editions the text includes: 1. general introduction and orientation, 2. protozoan infections, 3. helminthic infections, 4. arthropods and human disease, 5. technical appendix. The illustrations are well chosen, numerous and in keeping with the high quality of the book. Each parasite is considered under the headings of history, geographical distribution, morphology, habitat, life cycle, epidemiology, reservoir hosts, pathology, symptomatology, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and prevention. The control of arthropods is well presented and the use of recently discovered chemical agents is given in detail. The complete coverage of the subject makes this book of great value to zoology majors in college, graduate students, medical students, physicians and public health workers.
