The third edition of this widely known reference and text definitely lives up to the claim made by the authors that all sections have been brought up to date. The references dated 1943 and 1942 are prominent throughout all the book, but are most evident in the handling of clinical phases. It is impossible to speak of all the additions, but Tables XI and XII, presenting diagnostic criteria and recommended treatment for infection and infestation caused by animal parasites or transmitted by arthropods, are of particular interest. The same general outline used in the previous editions is followed, and it seems to the reviewer that the introductory remarks and general consideration of each main group and sub-group, although changed but little, merit definite mention because of their orientation value. For new readers, it should be noted that the book is limited to the protozoa, helminths and arthropods.These, the human infections and the diseases produced are thoroughly presented in a readable yet complete fashion.
