This work is a review of the subject of immunity against parasites and is intended for the student, the trained investigator, the practicing physician and the veterinarian. In the introduction the author states that he has adopted the classical work of Taliaferro, entitled “The Immunology of Parasitic Infections,” published in 1929, as a point of departure for his book and thus he has reviewed the subject and the contributions which have pertained to it from that date only. The book may thus be considered as a supplement to the book by Taliaferro, bringing the subject up-to-date.

A careful perusal of this work demonstrates that the author has fulfilled his task in an excellent manner and all who are interested in the subject will find here condensed in a practical manner all of the important literature relating to immunity in parasitic diseases. It will prove of great value to all interested in the subject of immunity and especially to research workers, to whom it will be indispensable.
