Abstract

For those who may think that malaria is no longer a problem, this book may be a reminder that there are still parts of the world where it is still a disease of major importance. As the author remarks, “… the loss sustained by Malaya (from malaria) was colossal” in earlier days, and “ or rural malaria has always remained the most difficult problem in the country.” To help the medical student and the general practitioner to learn to cope with it, this book has been written. It is essentially a rather elementary manual of malariology, but it includes much that will be of general interest, even though intended to meet the needs of a Malayan audience. After a foreword by Dr. John W. Field, who is himself well acquainted with the problem of malaria in this part of the world, the author proceeds with a brief account of Malayan geography, climate, population, agriculture, and other factors relevant to the incidence of malaria and its control.
