Updated to include the most recent breakthroughs
First published in 1998, here are the surprisingly fascinating stories of seven diseases that changed the course of human history - updated to reflect new medical and social developments such as:
- the ravages of AIDS in Africa, Asia, and other locations - the bioterror threat posed by smallpox eradication
- a primitive yet effective new measure for fighting cholera in India
- an important new drug to treat malaria
- and more
Illustrated with over fifty reproductions of photographs, newspaper cartoons, public health posters, and the like, " Invisible Enemies" is an intense and intriguing mix of history, biography, and biology.
