107 R. M. Prothero, Migrants and Malaria in Africa. Pittsburg, University of Pitts- burg Press, 1965, 148 pp., $ 1.50. Among the more attractive features of Social Science research in Africa are the high frequency of inter-disciplinary studies, and the fact that applied work can also be of fundamental importance. One of the better examples of this type of research is the book under review. Prothero has presented a study which is highly competent, which welds together the work of many disciplines, and which is clearly in an applied field, for the intention of the research was to demonstrate the effects of mobility on malaria transmission. At the same time it is one of the most comprehensive sources of data on migrations in Africa. For social scientists, the interest of the book will lie in this area, for we are gradually finding that African societies are highly mobile. Indeed, among the leading causes/results of social change are certain types of movements, notably labour migrations and urbanization. Yet, at the same time, our lack of know- ledge about migrations - regretfully, we have even less knowledge about the basic facts (volume, timing, pattern) than we have about the characteristics
