This ambitious, long-awaited work, a 3-volume review of parasitic zoonoses, is itself but one of four major reviews under James H. Steele's general editorship of the Handbook Series on Zoonoses of CRC Press, Section A: “Bacterial, Rickettsial, and Mycotic Diseases,” in 2 volumes; B: “Viral Zoonoses,” 2 volumes; the section reviewed here, C: “Parasitic Zoonoses,” in 3 volumes. A volume due in late 1984: Section D, “Antibiotics, Sulfonamides, Zoonoses and the Public Health.”

The three volumes of Section C are divided into Protozoan Zoonoses and Cestode Zoonoses (Vol. I), Nematode Zoonoses (Vol. II), and Trematode and Arthropod Zoonoses (Vol. III). Each is multiauthored under one or two volume editors.

Introductory material is duplicated in each volume, a necessity for 1-volume owners, but for series owners, cumbersome and redundant. Each volume begins with a series Preface by Steele, followed by the editor's biography, general Introduction (a valuable update on Norman Stoll's “This Wormy World,” a world whose human population has more than doubled since Stoll's memorable 1946 address, with cross-references to the chapter presentations in these volumes).
