Robert S. Desowitz, a leading epidemiologist, is the author of New Guinea Tape Worms and Jewish Grandmothers and The Malaria Capers, among other books. He lives in Pinehurst, North Carolina.Review:
“Dr. Desowitz tells many wise and important things about the health problems of the Third World . . . and of our own world. Fortunately, he presents his views in the form of highly entertaining stories that reveal how the life complexities of the microbial agents of disease are more than matched by the oddities of human behavior.”
- Rene Dubos
