, the book based on Professor P. C. C. Garnham's Health Clark lectures of 1968, is a delight. Using zoonoses as a unifying frame of reference, Garnham states important principles and cites examples that reflect an authenticity resulting from the author's half century of peripatetic research experience, his participation in many of the studies alluded to, and his close acquaintanceship with the workers involved. Reference to the novels, poetry, and music of the landscapes he surveys reflects both an intellectual breadth and a true epidemiologist's view of each area, a total view of the people and of their land.

“Progress in Parasitology” is a misnomer corrected by the author as early as the preface. The book is, he states “… more the progress of the author than the subject … [with] an attempt … to synthesize his experiences with something general. There is … a background of the past, and a foreground of the possible future.”
