About the Author:

Bernard Marcus, Ph.D., is a professor of biology at Genesee Community College in Batavia, New York. His principal interests are in environmental biology, tropical biology, and the modeling of aquatic environments in the laboratory. Marcus has been involved in studies on New York's Finger Lakes, on the impact of acid precipitation in the Adirondack Mountains, and on the effects of water pollution on stream insects. Foreword by David Heymann, World Health Organization

Review:

"Each holds almost 150 pages of information charting not only the world history of the disease, but the changes it effected on world society during its course. From the disease's progress to the various efforts to cure and control it, these are intriguing documentaries."
