This book is the first of a two-volume work on synanthropic flies prepared by authors from Australia, Czechoslovakia, England, and the United States. The major objective of this monumental volume is to record the organisms that have been found associated with those species of flies that are associated, in one way or another, with man and his domestic animals. Although the authors consider their coverage to be world-wide, there is actually an unusual amount of data from the Palearctic Region. This is no doubt partly because the European literature was easily handled with an international group. The body of the text is divided into seven chapters, a large bibliography, and a large index. There are data on over 340 species of flies and 750 different, associated organisms.

In chapter 1, the introduction, the format of the book is briefly described, followed by a list of the references which were used as guides for the taxonomic arrangements of the flies and the associated organisms.
