Description
 
Traces the history of deadly infectious diseases and looks to the future. Mixing informative discussion of relevant infectious diseases with history and first-hand accounts of what it is like to have, for example, the plague, this book ranges from the most common disease -- tooth decay -- to one of the most dangerous -- smallpox. It reveals that the great influenza pandemic of 1918 killed more people than WW1; that bioterrorism was used by the ancient Greeks; that Alexander the Greatís empire was brought to a halt because he died of malaria; and that TB is now resurgent in the West. This book provides a fascinating look at our struggle with disease, considers the future impact of deadly diseases in a changing world and discusses hope for the future. Illustrations.
