This is a welcome addition to the small number of books devoted to the eradication of human diseases, and disease-vectors known to the reviewer. discusses the general philosophy of eradication and its application to several specific problems.

That the author has written this book with its long-range optimism before the global eradication of any disease or disease vector has been accomplished, and while the malaria eradication effort—his field of special interest—is encountering serious difficulties in certain problem areas, does not mean that he underestimates the difficulties of eradication. Rather does it signal the conviction of an experienced worker in the international field; having personally followed the malaria program for a number of years in several countries, the author is convinced of the long-term solution of remaining problems.

This small volume will be valuable to public-health workers and to those interested in communicable-disease prevention who have not had access to the reports on eradication programs.
