Epidemiology: Fight Against Ebola & Other Diseases (History of Science) - Booklist

Few topics could be more timely and more concerning than the spread of infectious disease. The interdisciplinary nature of public health is explored in depth, touching on the sociology, economics, and geography of outbreaks. Working conditions, job responsibilities, and ethical concerns of epidemiologists are explained and depicted in full-color photographs of scientists on the job. Part career exploration, part historical chronicle, and part scientific explanation, this book captures the complexities facing epidemiologists today.
