9780140129267: Fourth Horseman: A Short History Of Epidemics Plagues Famine And Other Scourges

The author shows how feeble mankind's attempts to subdue the "super organism" of bacterial life has been. He reviews the great levelers: malaria, leprosy, the Black Death, the plague, syphilis, small pox, tuberculosis, flu and Aids. The author puts forward the controversial view that conquering HIV does not necessarily mean the conquering of Aids and AZT is as dangerous and unsuccessful a "cure" as mercury was for syphilis in the 18th century.
