This third edition of Leonard Bruce-Chwatt's classic handbook has been revised by a team of international experts. It has an increased clinical orientation which particularly emphasizes the use of chemotherapy in the management of the disease. There is also extensive updating of our rapidly advancing scientific understanding of parasitological, entomological, epidemiological, clinical and immunological aspects of malaria and its transmission. 'Essential Malariology' provides an indispensable practical guide for the physician dealing with the disease anywhere in the world and also offers invaluable advice to public health workers implementing malaria-control policies and to laboratory staff.

'Its admirable blend of up-to-date factual information, scholarly and authoritative comment and philosophical wisdom is applied to the whole range of human malariology...it has found a place in the research laboratory, the hospital and the consulting room as well as in the field worker's knapsack and the administrator's desk.' --Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (of the second edition)
