Malaria is clearly a worthy subject in this ambitious series. The preface sets the stage for the treatise on malaria and establishes the author’s interest and qualifications for writing the book.

The author writes an authoritative and masterful book capturing a great deal of information although he modeslty adds "a short history of malaria" on the title page of his book. The fact is, malaria is a *global* disease which although confined *mostly* to the tropics, has also developed elsewhere in northern climates when the conditions are right/5(39).

This paper grew out of a meeting organized in September in London on ‘Re-imagining malaria’. The focus of that meeting was on malaria today; only afterwards did the idea emerge that re-imagining the past might serve as a useful way for guiding present re-thinking.
