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 AIDS, these fascinating titles explore the causes and the human toll inflicted by these epidemics and their role in the history of humankind.
Few people are aware of this extremely gruesome, once very deadly disease. But before cholera was understood and a treatment was created, it was one of the most feared diseases known to humankind. This book discusses the history of this disease, how doctors came to understand and treat it, and how, today, it is relatively easy to cure.
