Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Karlan, a psychoanalyst who has written several books on history and biomedical science, delves into the evolution and day-to-day life of Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb), the germ that causes Lyme disease, from the germ's point of view. An index and some sort of reference list would have proved useful. Readers explore Bb's life cycle, its search for a host, and its relationships with these hosts, including humans.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

This unusual examination of "Borrelia burgdorfieri" (Bb), the bacteria that causes Lyme disease, follows the microbe's path through from mouse to tick to deer to human and discusses the history and evolution of Lyme disease and its impact on our changing environment.176 pp.
