Reviewed with Holly Cefrey's Syphilis and Other Sexually Transmitted Diseases .Gr. 5-8. The Epidemics series introduces diseases from current as well as historical perspectives. Syphilis discusses the European syphilis epidemic that began in 1493, early treatments, and the twentieth-century discoveries of the cause of syphilis and its cure. On a more practical level, the book briefly but clearly describes and presents the symptoms of syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases, encouraging readers who are sexually active to be tested for them. Typhoid Fever tells of outbreaks in seventeenth-century Jamestown and nineteenth-century Chicago and relates the story of Typhoid Mary. The search for the disease's cause and its cure follow historical developments in germ theory, vaccination, and antibiotics. The books include clearly reproduced period photos, paintings, and artifacts, as well as sidebars carrying information on topics such as the Tuskegee study on syphilis and tips for travelers on how to avoid contracting typhoid fever. Each succinct, attractive presentation ends with a glossary, bibliography, and sources of further information in the U.S and Canada.
