About this book
Explores the history and growing scientific understanding of tuberculosis, and explores the story of a killer disease that was virtually eradicated in the 20th century, but is making an alarming comeback.
The story of tuberculosis is a rich and fascinating one. It is a complex and ancient disease that, after many years of virtual disappearance in the developed world, is now making something of a comeback. Helen Bynum tracks the historical development of the disease, and considers the challenges it presents to the modern world.
