During the 14th cent., 1/3 of the people on Earth may have died from bubonic plague, or Black Death. Between 1492 and 1650, the Native Amer. population of Central America fell from about 27 million to 1 million as a result of diseases carried by European invaders. Today, 1 in 3 people worldwide is infected with the TB bacteria. This book shows how epidemics have changed history and how human behavior has contributed to the emergence and spread of diseases. In lengthy articles illustrated with full-color maps, this book explores 32 diseases. Also, common symptoms, means of transmission, and such concepts as immunity, inoculation, germ theory, and drug-resistance are explained. A useful resource for both history and health class research.
