Item description for Eyewitness DK: Epidemic by Brian Ward...

Discover the battle against epidemics -- from the Black Death and smallpox to the modern superbug.

For as along as people have lived together in communities, infectious disease has been a part of everyday life. The fascinating story of disease-causing microbes, bacteria, and viruses crosses every area of human existence -- from medicine, social history, and geography to art and natural history. This unique guide takes you on a compelling journey through time and into the future -- from the plagues of the Ancient Egyptians to the laboratories of the twenty-first century. Stunning, three-dimensional models of disease-causing agents and superb electron-microscope images reveal this microscopic and dramatic world in incredible detail. Written by science and medical expert Brian Ward and produced in association with The American Museum of Natural History, Epidemic is one of the few in-depth explorations of this extraordinary subject for the ordinary reader.

Reviews - What do customers think about Eyewitness DK: Epidemic?

A great primer for folks outside of medicine or public health  Jun 20, 2007
I'm a physician and I hold a Master's in Public Health. I bought this book for my kids, along with several other DK titles. This is a great overview of the subject and covers the history of epidemiology in a wonderfully straight forward and very complete manner. In fact, I keep a copy in my office to loan to my non-medical colleagues for a fast and highly readable overview of this fascinating subject! Grade School, High School, College or Post Bach, what ever your educational level, I don't think you'll be disappointed with this very neat book!
Adults like these books too...  Oct 24, 2004
I first got into the Eyewitness series when I was in elementary I'm nearly 21 and I still love these books! "Epidemic" is one of my favorites. I love the mix of both recent photography and older woodcuts/drawings used to illustrate such topics as historical diseases (such as leprosy), and more modern ones (like AIDS). I highly recommend "Epidemic" to anyone, young or old, who is interested in the symptoms and treatment of illness throughout history.
