This is a revision of "Animal Parasitology," which was published under the same authorship in 1929. The title has been changed to "Parasitology" because the former title had led some to believe that the text related only to the parasites of lower animals. Man and his parasites come in for a full share of attention, although the parasites of common domestic animals are included, as well as the parasites of a few other species of animals, which serve as a source of material for study.

The book opens with a 33 page introduction by the senior author. He discusses the general biology of parasitism, host-parasite relations and changes produced in the host and in the parasite. The body of the volume is divided into three main sections: "Protozoology," by Hegner; "Helminthology," by Augustine, and "Arthropods of Parasitological Importance," by the late Professor Root, revised by Huff.

The book discusses parasitology
