Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The deadly smallpox disease can be traced back as far as 3,000 B.C. where Egyptian records document a smallpox-like disease. During the proceeding centuries the smallpox virus traveled throughout the world, killing hundreds of thousands of people and in some cases, eradicating entire communities. Attempts to prevent smallpox were boundless. Inoculations were not fully accepted until the late 1700's. Today only two known smallpox samples exist and these are securely held for research purposes only. This book is a fascinating examination of the history of this catastrophic, contagious, and disfiguring disease. It created massive fear for thousands of years and after the 2001 terrorist attacks new concerns have been raised. For a fascinating and thorough understanding of the smallpox virus and its effects on world history, this title—part of the "Epidemic!" series—is strongly recommended. 2005, Benchmark Books, Ages 10 up.
—Denise Daley
School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-Offering riveting information on frightening epidemics, these attractive volumes are exemplary information sources. Each one begins with a discussion of the cause of the disease and the infection process. Subsequent chapters then treat its history and search for a cure, the course it took during a particular time and in a particular place (the United States between 1900 and the early 1960s in Polio, worldwide in 1918-1919 in Influenza, and 1492-1800 in the New World in Smallpox), and eventual success in creating vaccines or, in Influenza, continued efforts to re-create the genetic code for the virus in order to prevent recurrence. Peters makes superb and frequent use of primary sources. The selection of period reproductions and photographs is also outstanding, and the illustrations extend the texts perfectly. Each book also includes an annotated list for further reading and a detailed, accurate index. The author's prose is exceptionally lucid, interesting, and graceful. While Alvin Silverstein's Polio (Enslow, 2001), Virginia Aronson's Influenza Pandemic of 1918-1919 (Chelsea House, 2000), and Tom Ridgway's Smallpox (Rosen, 2001) cover the same turf, none of those titles does it with the style of these offerings.-Ann Welton, Grant Elementary School, Tacoma, WA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
