This text was originally conceived to meet the needs of “the practitioner, who, from time to time, will certainly require to make a diagnosis in diseases caused by animal parasites” and “for those who are taking courses of instruction for Diplomas of Tropical Medicine, Tropical Hygiene and Public Health.” If the numerous reprintings and editions that have appeared since 1931 are any eriteria, then these objectives, at least in the past, appear to have been adequately fulfilled. The current eighth edition follows essentially the same format as used in all previous editions, and only limited corrections and minor additions have been made by the reviser, Professor Davey.

The approach to diagnosis is entirely morphologic, with emphasis given to descriptions of characteristics and life-stages considered pertinent to a definitive diagnosis. Serologic and immunologic techniques receive only cursory mention or are ignored. No attempt is made to cover either the clinical aspects of parasitosis or to provide information on specific therapy.
