Quiet Killers: The Fall and Rise of Deadly Diseases
Robert Baker (au)
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.
