Overview

Professionals, students and all medical history buffs will be indebted to Socrates Litsios' new book Plague Legends: from the Miasmas of Hippocrates to the Microbes of Pasteur for providing an easy access to a treasure of information. This finely crafted, scholarly book traces the long 2000 years of western civilization during which philosophy, literature, and the arts flourished but medical science remained a confused, often dangerous, body of ignorance. Litsios' book presents an expert account of what the discovery of microbes and their pathogenic potentials meant to human health.
