Description - When Plague Strikes by James Giblin

Compassionate and arresting, this exploration of three major diseases that have changed the course of history--the bubonic plague, smallpox, and AIDS--chronicles their fearsome death toll, their lasting social, economic, and political implications, and how medical knowledge and treatments have advanced as a result of the crises they have occasioned. "A book that would serve well for reports, but it is also a fascinating read."--SLJ.
