This little paperback handbook gives in simple, largely nontechnical language the facts about malaria in Africa south of the Sahara desert. There is no preface nor anything in the introductory chapter that tells the reader for what purpose the book was written. It is one of The Student's Library Series of the publisher, and the back cover carries a statement that the book “covers essential ground for the medical student as well as the administrator and layman.” The author was Government Malariologist in Ghana from 1952 to 1955; subsequently he joined the staff of the World Health Organization to serve as Malaria Adviser to malaria eradication programs in southeast Asia.

The book has six chapters, two appendices, a list of titles for further reading, and an adequate index. An introductory chapter places malaria in Africa in perspective and gives outstanding historical facts about malaria.
