From the Publisher

The history of tropical medicine is as dramatic as the story of mankind--with its
own myths and legends, with tales of epidemics destroying whole civilizations; and,
still today, with silent stealth, these diseases claim more lives than all the
current wars combined. Having had the privilege of working throughout Africa, Asia,
and Latin America, as well as in the great medical centers of Europe and the United
States, the author presents the essential details for understanding pathogenesis,
clinical manifestations, therapy, and prevention of the major tropical diseases. The
text, now in its seventh edition, has been used for a half-century by medical
students, practicing physicians, and public health workers around the world. This
fascinating book should also be of interest to a broad,nonmedical readership
interested in world affairs.All royalties from the sale of this book go to the
training of humanitarian workers.
