ABSTRACT

A review of this book must begin by noting its outrageous price, $88.60, for a standard-sized volume with no color plates or other expensive features to explain the almost obscene cost. This fact will—and should—restrict the sale of Tropical Pathology. This is regrettable since nine authoritative workers in tropical medicine have contributed 25 readable chapters dealing with tropical diseases.

The text necessarily duplicates much to be found in other publications, many of recent date. The title orients us to pathology, but we find much that is not normally found in that specialty, and I wonder at the purpose of the book. Is it intended as a general tropical disease text, or is it intended for the physician interested in pathology who treats patients from the tropics? There seem to be elements of both approaches in this book.

The writing is generally concise and clear with an overall high quality throughout.
