Abstract

Despite all the fine books on malaria of the last 40 years, malariology has remained a primary-reference-source discipline, in serious need of a basic textbook for beginners and health workers in the vast malarious regions without access to well stocked university libraries. Professor Bruce-Chwatt has given us that book, a well balanced, authoritative blend of academic and applied malariology.

is written in clear, unintimidating language, bearing the unmistakable stamp of the author's broad field and administrative experience. Professor Bruce-Chwatt served as malaria specialist in Nigeria, chief of research and technical intelligence for the Division of Malaria Eradication of the World Health Organization and for many years participated in the WHO Expert Committee meetings on malaria, Director of the Ross Institute of Tropical Medicine and Professor of Tropical Hygiene at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

No text today could cover the entire field of malariology,but the author has managed to include some discussion on nearly every concept one would expect to see considered in a course on malariology.
