Description: This book combines maps and graphs of charting the course of epidemics in history and in modern times with lengthy and detailed discussions of the history, cause, course, and treatment of disease. Arranged alphabetically, the contents are presented disease by disease - 35 diseases in all, the most wide-ranging epidemics and pandemics in human history, including polio, leprosy, measles, AIDS, Malaria, Plague, Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever, Typhus, Smallpox, and more. For each entry there is a detailed fact box indicating the Prevalance, Transmission, Characteristics, Treatment, and Prevention of a disease, together with a map showing its present-day pockets of concentration in the world. On subsequent pages of each entry there are historical maps of global or regional epidemics.
