The challenge of summarizing the advances in the bioscience of malaria over the past decade is formidable. Considering the scope of recent immunologic, biochemical and pharmacologic developments, a summary of the current state of the science might intelligently fill several volumes. Yet, the editor of this new monograph, has skillfully met the challenge by bringing together 15 outstanding papers in only about 100 pages. The authors are recognized authorities in their respective fields, and their papers are concise summaries supported with extensive, well-selected lists of references. The monograph was originally published as an issue of the in late 1982 and, probably because of the journal format, the information is up to date, apparently not having suffered from the extensive time delays encountered with many such publications.

The initial papers detail recent studies on the life cycle of and the interaction of the malaria parasites with the host red blood cells.
