The authors and publishers of this bibliography are to be congratulated for a simple, yet straight-forward, useful and inexpensive publication. It consists of 2,035 references on Chagas's disease and its etiologic agent, Trypanosoma cruzi, plus an author index in a slim, paper-covered volume. References are arranged in numerical order and grouped in 14 practical subject headings such as taxonomy, cultivation, pathology, therapy, etc. The subject of epidemiology is further subdivided into four appropriate sections such as vectors, reservoir hosts, etc., and the final of the 14 principal subject headings is devoted to references concerning T. rangeli. In the author index an asterisk marking serves to distinguish entries of principal vs. joint authorship.
This bibliography has been compiled from entries between 1909 and late 1970 in the well-known and high quality abstracting journal, Tropical Diseases Bulletin (TDB). For each entry the TDB reference as well as the original citation is included.
