Parasitology reference text

     I teach Zoology each Spring.  I like parasites and try and
give a little emphasis to them in the course.  For much of my
background I use Foundations of Parasitology by Schmidt and
Roberts (4th ed. 1989).  I really like it because it is very easy
to read and seems to be pretty up to date.  However, five years
is a bit old, and I noticed there is no 5th edition (at least
yet).  Is there any other more recent text that you would
recommend that would provide interesting tidbits to add to the
course.   I took a look at books in print, but there appear to be
a lot of texts, and you can't tell from the title how well
written or good a book it is. I am not interested in a technical
manual, but a good solid book with lots of interesting tidbits
(which is one thing that makes parasites interesting). 
Thanks for any feedback.
