[Extract] Travel medicine is a discipline that is constantly evolving, as the patterns of disease and injury change; however the synergy between travel and tropical medicine has existed throughout the age of travel and throughout the development of the discipline. The Fourth Edition of The Travel and Tropical Medicine Manual satisfies the need for a ready reference source of information on major travel-related and tropical disease and injury issues. It has a table of Contents, a Preface, a list of Contributors, seven main Sections, 45 chapters, an Appendix, and a comprehensive Index. There are also numerous Tables, a few Figures and a small number of colour photographs. The textbook is presented as a compact 11.5 × 19.5 × 3.0 cm paperback reference book, which would easily fit into the coat pocket, briefcase or the office desktop reference shelf. It is well researched, consistent, and systematic in its presentation, especially around the presentation of various infectious diseases.
