Viruses and bacteria are so small that you need a microscope to see them, and yet they are powerful enough to change the course of human history. Ancient epidemics like smallpox and the plague and current scourges like HIV/AIDS and cholera have profound impacts on the way we live today. Epidemics and Pandemics takes you through the science, history, and current status of the severe and often-scary world of widespread outbreaks.
The six-volume set, The Science of the Human Body, provides readers with all the information they need to understand how we function. Topics include our vital bodily systems, organ transplants, genetic modifications, common and exotic illnesses, and the fight against deadly pandemics. Taken together, the set provides a comprehensive foundation of knowledge for students of human biology.
