Introductory textbook which covers the essential principles of the parasitic life cycle rather than looking at each type of parasite.
'... the style is exemplary and there are many felicitous phrases and comparisons which help to lighten the text and make the whole thing a delight to read ... This book certainly fulfils admirably its primary function of providing an introductory undergraduate textbook and gives a more comprehensive and clearer exposition of almost all aspects of animal parasitology than many other considerably more expensive hardback textbooks.' Biologist 'This is a straightforwardly written textbook which successfully introduces the undergraduate and the nonspecialist to the more arcane literature. It presents the material clearly, interestingly and with a typically British sense of humour, all of it which makes it a pleasure to read.' Lorenzo Savioli, Bulletin of the World Health Organization 'This book is a wonderful introduction to the field of parasitology.' International Journal for Parasitology '... a well-rounded view of parasitology.' BIOSIS
