would have been an excellent title to this second book by Dr. Michael Gelfand if the author had not already used it for his first book which dealt in fact with “Medicine in Tropical Africa” and little with the African pathological peculiarities. For all medical men who were slightly deceived by Dr. Michael Gelfand's first book after the wonderful promise of its title, the present one will bring great satisfaction. Africa is a fascinating continent and in so many respects different from other tropical regions of the world. The very concise book (243 pages) illustrated with refreshing new photographs (114 of them) should become a classical introduction to the subject of Africa for the medical students and doctors.

While Dr. H. C. Trowell's recent book on provided special stimulation to the medical research scientists, Dr. Gelfand's new book has a special appeal to the practitioners faced with the problems of tropical medicine in Africa.
