Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who among us has not been terrified by recent outbreaks of viral and bacterial diseases seemingly resistant to antibiotics and other forms of modern "treatment", not to mention the increasingly real threat of biological warfare? This gripping new book investigates the reality of these so-called plagues and examines the history of the most frightening strains that loom on the horizon. Sections are included on the history of infectious disease, from smallpox and syphilis to yellow fever, cold and flu viruses and their epidemic potential, HIV/ AIDS, the Ebola virus, food contaminants such as e coli, flesh-eating bacteria and the most current developments in resistance and genetic engineering. Whether you are an intellectually curious layperson or a medical professional, this book will fascinate and inform you about some of modern society's greatest fears.
