Infectious diseases used to be nature's leading killers until vaccines came into widespread use. In this anthology, the history of vaccines' development and the controversies over their use in mass inoculation campaigns is explored from their 18th century origins down to the present.
"Motivated high-school researchers will reap benefit from this wide-angled collection, as much from the timely information as from the glimpses of biomedicine in action."
