First published in 1998, here are the surprisingly fascinating stories of seven diseases that changed the course of human history – updated to reflect new medical and social developments such as:
– the ravages of AIDS in Africa, Asia, and other locations – the bioterror threat posed by smallpox eradication
– a primitive yet effective new measure for fighting cholera in India
– an important new drug to treat malaria
– and more

Illustrated with over fifty reproductions of photographs, newspaper cartoons, public health posters, and the like, Invisible Enemies is an intense and intriguing mix of history, biography, and biology
