Description
 
Rabies, one of humanity’s most ancient & feared diseases, has recently swept through dogs in TX & through raccoons from FL to NY. The U.S. seems helpless to resolve them -- despite the fact that Europe & Canada have mounted successful & ongoing oral rabies vaccination programs. Written in 1998, this book discusses the controversy over who will pay for a fed. approved vaccine, since the U.S. considers rabies a local health problem, though the virus knows no state lines or international bound. It chronicles the epidemic, the politics of response to it, & the most ambitious Amer. attempt to erect a barrier against the disease -- the dropping of an experimental, genetically engineered vaccine over nearly 15,000 sq. mi. of S. Texas brushlands in 1995. Illus.
