From the Publisher
"In this excellent and timely volume in the series 'Healing Society: Disease, Medicine, and History,' Magner (emer., Purdue) illuminatingly reviews infectious diseases and the microbial world throughout history. The author helpfully positions disease as contextualized within its social history rather than divorced from it. . . . Although her prose is always solidly expressed in an academic manner, Magner's book is accessible to the informed and motivated layperson. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers."
