Abstract

Nearly 30 years have elapsed since the last monograph dealing with and borreliosis was published in this country (A Symposium on Relapsing Fever in the Americas, edited by F. R. Moulton, published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, in 1942). It is only fitting that Dr. Felsenfeld has extensively reviewed and updated our knowledge on the subject, as he has devoted much of his energy for many years to a systematic study of this group of organisms and their relation to human and animal disease. In a well written, concise fashion he has summarized a massive amount of data (749 references) into a compact volume (149 pages of actual text material) which will be of value to the basic laboratorian, the entomologist, the clinician, and the veterinarian.

The first section deals with human borreliosis (relapsing fever), and includes some of the many fascinating vignettes in the history of our knowledge of this infectious disease.
