Could our modern lifestyle have something to do with it? In the light of the major epidemics that humanity has faced to date, what should we be preparing for in the future? What weapons do we have to protect ourselves? What is research doing?

This book provides clear answers to many very specific questions, validated by renowned infectious disease specialists and written in an accessible style.
