"No one will ever again die of smallpox. With the battle against that "most terrible of the ministers of death" won, an unprecedented humanitarian coalition has now turned to polio, malaria and measles."--Jacket flap
A world free of epidemic diseases might seem a utopian pipe-dream, but that brand new world is a lot closer than you might think. Bartlett give us a rare inside look at how both global organizations and local campaigns operate on the front lines in the war against contagious disease. She reveals how victory in this battle will have profound consequences for the balance of world power and will embolden scientists to make other, even more momentous breakthroughs
