Summary
These in-depth and informative books examine the nature of these diseases and the devastating effects they have had on populations throughout the world and throughout history. From the earliest infections like malaria to modern-day health crises such as SARS, these fascinating titles explore not only the causes of these diseases and their role in the history of humankind but also the human toll inflicted by these epidemics. Diseases that we no longer consider dangerous were some of the most deadly diseases of their time. Diphtheria, a disease that caused breathing difficulties, suffocation, heart failure, and paralysis, was one of the most feared killers during the 1800s. During the peak years of diphtheria epidemics, 150,000 people a year became infected, and 15,000 of those died. The discovery of a treatment for diphtheria is one of modern medicine's greatest success stories, told here in gripping style. Once called "the strangling angel of children," diphtheria has become a rarity in the developed world as the fight against it continues in Africa, Asia, and Central America
