Abstract

This is an adaptation of the central portion (Part II) of , published originally in 1923 by John Murray, London. It covers those years Surgeon Ross spent on military duty in India and is his story of his discovery of a malarial parasite in the mosquito. His preface is included, and an introduction by L J Bruce-Chwatt provides information concerning the life of Sir Ronald to place the excerpted material in perspective. There also is a glossary of the major scientific terms used by Ross, prepared by Bruce-Chwatt in association with P C G Garnham.

The main points of this epochal work are well-known and need not be recounted here. In addition to his story of his scientific accomplishments, recorded primarily in the copious Manson-Ross correspondence, there is a record of the man who was Ross. The preface contains prime examples of his acerbic outlook.
