The last two chapters are devoted exclusively to this pathogen: one deals with the pathogenesis of AIDS, and the other with the control of HIV infection.

This little book is an attempt to bring together and place in untechnical form the most important of the facts gathered from sources many of which are at present inaccessible to the general reader, perhaps even to many physicians and entomologists.
The book provides an overview of insects, mites and ticks that directly cause diseases of humans and domestic animals, and that transmit microbes causing disease. It is aimed at students and practitioners in medical and veterinary health services.
