This indispensable book-which rivals even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's web site in accessibility and breadth-is a practical guide to understanding communicable diseases and their transmission modes. Youngerman (A Brief History of Afghanistan) first enumerates U.S. pandemics, both historical and contemporary, then identifies infectious pathogens still rampant outside U.S. borders. He gives careful consideration to complex issues that aid disease proliferation, including ecological concerns and information suppression. Highly recommended.
