about this item

In a resource for writers, historians, researchers, health professionals, journalists, and general readers, Snodgrass describes epidemics from around the world from the earliest records to the 21st century. She arranges them by estimated time spans and exact dates, and summarizes the data available on incidents of contagion. Lengthy histories she breaks up by date and links them with cross references to round out events that fail to fit into neat time frames--for example smallpox in the Western Hemisphere, sailors and scurvy, and the worldwide advance of AIDS and Zika.
