This year marks the ninetieth anniversary of the Influenza Epidemic of 1918, but the fear of another global viral plague is far from history. As evidenced by the panic in recent years over everything from SARS to drug-resistant tuberculosis, infectious diseases still cause worldwide alarm and remain a significant threat to international health.
Infectious Disease collects thirty of the most exciting, innovative, and significant articles on communicable illness published in the pages of Scientific American magazine since 1993. With sections devoted to viral infections, the immune system, and global management and treatment issues, it provides both general readers and students with an excellent overview of recent research in the field.
