The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance

The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance - Laurie Garrett

The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance


A New York Times bestseller

The definitive account of the infectious diseases threatening humanity by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Laurie Garrett

Prodigiously researched . . . A frightening vision of the future and a deeply unsettling one. --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

After decades spent assuming that the conquest of infectious disease was imminent, people on all continents now find themselves besieged by AIDS, drug-resistant tuberculosis, cholera that defies chlorine water treatment, and exotic viruses that can kill in a matter of hours.

Relying on extensive interviews with leading experts in virology, molecular biology, disease ecology, and medicine, as well as field research in sub-Saharan Africa, Western Europe, Central America, and the United States, Laurie Garrett's The Coming Plague takes readers from the savannas of eastern Bolivia to the rain forests of the northern Democratic Republic of the Congo on a harrowing, fifty year journey through the history of our battles with microbes. This book is a work of investigative reportage like no other and a wake-up call to a world that has become complacent in the face of infectious disease--one that offers a sobering and prescient warning about the dangers of ignoring the coming plague.
