To most minds the twentieth century has seen more progress in the understanding and control of disease than any other. We are now into the last quarter of that prodigious century, and much of its medical history remains unwritten. For that reason, if no other, there should be an enthusiastic audience for a book that records the history of the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Having played a prominent role in the most productive years of the period he describes, Wesley Spink is in a propitious position for the task at hand.
