Synopsis: Book by Hoff, Brent H., Smith, Carter
From School Library Journal:
Grade 8 Up-More than 30 potentially deadly human illnesses are profiled in this volume. Ancient scourges such as leprosy, smallpox, and cholera are joined by more contemporary infectious diseases including HIV/AIDS and dengue hemorrhagic fever. Both the alphabetical arrangement of articles by disease name and the extensively cross-referenced index enhance the ease of access. Each two-to-six page article includes a boxed compilation of basic facts and a map showing global distribution. Most present the causative agent, transmission systems, treatment, prevention, and control measures. The bulk of each article links the history of human experience with the illness, major outbreaks, and its modus operandi. The clear role that specific epidemics have played in changing the course of history is particularly intriguing. A useful glossary appears at the beginning of the text and includes photographs of bacterial and virus microbes and details significant differences between the two. Other photographs and illustrations are plentiful, full color, and varied in content from article to article. Anyone studying the history of human civilization or epidemiology will find this information-rich compilation fascinating and useful for reports.
