Tony Gould (au). A comprehensive & compelling account of the 20th-century experience of polio. Interweaving biographical, political, social, & medical history, Tony Gould -- a distinguished British writer & himself a polio survivor -- traces the rise & fall of the epidemic & describes the individuals who were influential in its treatment & conquest. Gould combines meticulous scholarship with excellent writing skills to create a story that is as compelling as it is power, vividly portraying the scientific, social, & human aspects of this terrifying affliction. A welcome history of the disease & of the making of the vaccines that now protect our children, enlivened by first-hand accounts. B&W photos.
