The history of tropical medicine is as dramatic as the story of humankind. It has its own myths and legends, including tales of epidemics that destroyed whole civilizations. Today, with silent stealth, tropical diseases still 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 details essential for understanding pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, therapy, and prevention of the major tropical diseases. The text, now in its eighth edition, has been used for half a 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.

Review:

“This revised and expanded edition of Tropical Medicine: A Clinical Text reflects the personal experience of the author over many years of direct and intimate contact with countries in the Third World, ranging from those in Africa to those in South America. It has been the standard textbook used by many generations of both medical students and postgraduate
physicians studying tropical medicine at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and in other academic centers around the world. It is a practical and very readable textbook.”

(―Herbert Gilles, M.D., C.M.G. Professor Emeritus, The Liverpool School
of Tropical Medicine; Past President, The Royal Society of Tropical Medicine
and Hygiene
)

“Diplomats who must deal with the after-effects of man-made and natural disasters are well aware that epidemic diseases flourish as societies collapse, and that more people usually die in such circumstances from preventable illnesses
than from armed conflicts. This is an essential book for those who seek to restore peace and stability in war-torn and disaster areas. It considers the critical interrelationships of medicine and statesmanship, and it is one of the reasons why I have asked the author to serve as my Chief Adviser on Humanitarian and Public Health issues.”

(―H.E. Nassir Al Nasser President, United Nations General Assembly, Sixty-sixth Session)

. . . A 'must' for any medical collection. It provides a world history of tropical medicine approaches and comes from a doctor who himself has worked throughout the world in both Third World and developed countries. (―California Bookwatch)
