About the Author:

Patrick Guilfoile earned his Ph.D. in bacteriology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He subsequently did postdoctoral research at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is now a professor of biology at Bemidji State University in northern Minnesota, where he teaches microbiology and medical microbiology. He most recent research has focused on the molecular genetics of ticks and other parasites. He has authored or co-authored more than 20 papers in scientific and biology education journals. He has also written a molecular biology laboratory manual, a book on controlling ticks that transmit Lyme disease, and a book about antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the Deadly Diseases and Epidemics series.

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."
