The first edition of this volume (Animal Agents and Vectors of Human Disease) was written by Dr. Ernest Carroll Faust alone. In the second edition he has been joined by Dr. Paul C. Beaver and Dr. Rodney C. Jung who are outstanding investigators and teachers in the field of parasitic diseases. These three authors have brought a completely modern approach to this volume.

The table of contents contains five sections: I. Introduction, which considers orientation and parasite host relations. Section II. The protozoan agents, including the flagellates, the amebae, the ciliates, the coccidia which include malaria and sarcosporidea, and protozoa of undetermined relationship. Section III. The helminths, the roundworms, the flatworms and leeches. Section IV. Arthropods as agents and vectors. Section V. Technical aids. This is followed by author and subject indexes from pages 471 to 485.
