General parasitology is the subject of several recent texts, which differ as to scope, format, fitness for teaching or reference, and overall merit. In this complete revision of his 1962 textbook (published in England) J. D. Smyth, Professor of Parasitology, University of London, offers another such volume. emphasizes parasites' structure and function within the general compass of their life histories. With this expanse of knowledge to cover, Smyth necessarily has limited his discussions to selected protozoa and helminths, and he also has chosen to neglect areas such as the taxonomic and clinical aspects of parasitism.

The 35 chapters treat parasitism in general (1 chapter), the host as environment (1), protozoa (8), trematodes (8), cestodes (6), nematodes (6), acanthocephala (1), immunity (2), and in vitro cultivation (2).
