Media reviews

"Containing 150 entries from Aegyptianellosis to the Zika virus, some 88 authors offer basic information related to the transmission, symptoms, treatment, and control of infections transmitted by biting midges, ticks, lice, and related organisms. Editor Service (Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, UK) has allowed the contributors fairly wide latitude in addressing their topics, leading the entries to emphasize differing aspects of infections. Although the work is devoted primarily to infections, brief accounts of several arthropods are included so that their relevant points of classification don't need to be repeated in entries. Selected bibliographies are included to allow the reader to find more detailed information on infections."
