9780002555173: Tropical Diseases Or Who Gave the Pinta

An exploration of how life-threatening diseases have travelled and continued to travel to Europe and America from Africa and Asia. History shows that many of the diseases we assume are tropical occur frequently in developed countries with temperate climates. The book explores what the social and economic effects of tropical diseases have been. The final sections of the book address the health problems facing the Third World today, and the dangers that new "doomsday bugs" will be transferred to the First World.
