KIRKUS REVIEW

In the Haggard tradition of popular writing on medical science, here is a book with bacteria as the subject. Comprehensive, covering the science and the many facets studied by bacteriologists, the coccus family, T.B., syphillis, diptheria, influenza, tetanus, etc. How our bodies fight infection, how wounds heal, outside methods of curing and arresting bacteria sabotage, new forms of treatment of the ""Middle or Sulfanilamide Period"", and what the future holds for the conquering of infection. Done in casual style for the layman, but written with a note of authority.
