The Tomorrow of Malaria is an interesting, pocket-sized paperback which seeks to explore the past, present, and future of malaria and its control. It is obviously difficult to provide an inclusive account of such a complicated and far-reaching subject in less than 180 pages, but the author deserves credit for providing illuminating highlights. Much of the information discusses the exploits and philosophies of a half-dozen of the malariologists who provided much of the background efforts to control this disease during the 20th century.
In a sense, this seems to be a book in search of an audience. It is difficult to identify what group would most likely benefit from reading it. Certainly, a scientist in the field of malaria would find it too elementary to be of much value; however, a student, studying tropical diseases and hygiene, might find the historical accounts interesting, and incentive for further exploration.
