Pleuropneumonia has had a long history in Australia. "Clearing a Continent: The Eradication of Bovine Pleuropneumonia from Australia" is an authoritative monograph on the history, spread, and final eradication of the disease. Based on an enormous amount of research and archive material, the text details the background of the first outbreak, the spread through the affected states, the battle for control, as well as the persistence of the disease in northern areas long after it had been brought under control in the south. There is also vital information on vaccination. This work is an important resource not only for those with a need for historical information on disease in Australia, but also as a reference for countries throughout the world to provide a better understanding of the behaviour of the disease.
