A New York Times reporter?s eye-opening call to arms in the fight against epidemic diseases

We face a great choice. Philip Hilts, a prizewinning journalist for the New York Times and the Washington Post, argues in this report on global epidemic diseases that the world?s leading nations now have the means to win the fight against ?the coming plague??but they must act quickly or face grave consequences. Based on firsthand visits to disease hot spots around the world and in-depth interviews with leading researchers and other medical pioneers working on the ground, who are the major forces pushing for a coordinated world campaign, Hilts tells the inspiring stories of remarkably simple but powerful new approaches that are leading to astonishing success.

About the Author
