Reviews

"Dr. Knapp is a trained historian who took the trouble to go deep into microbiology so as to write this fascinating survey history of modern Europe's experience with bacterial disease. . . . it is exciting reading, and the material is absolutely essential to an understanding of modern European history." - William O. McCagg, Jr.
