The second edition of Dr. Schwabe's book is an articulate study of the interaction between veterinary and human medicine. This revised and updated edition is greatly expanded in the area of epidemiologic and ecologic concepts as related to the animalman disease relationship.

The zoonoses have been given chapter status in this edition; this chapter, with its epidemiologic case studies, is an outstanding feature. The new material in the chapter on animals as agents and vectors is also worthy of comment.

Dr. Schwabe has given an excellent historical perspective of the role of veterinarians in public health; however, more important are his innovative ideas in the various areas of expanding this role in the future.
