Summary
Compassionate and arresting, this exploration of three major diseases that have changed the course of history the bubonic plague, smallpox, and AIDS chronicles their fearsome death toll, their lasting social, economic, and political implications, and how medical knowledge and treatments have advanced as a result of the crises they have occasioned. "A book that would serve well for reports, but it is also a fascinating read." School Library Journal
