Synopsis

Anthrax by Janet Decker, Alan Hecht

Anthrax became a household word in 2001 when spores of the bacterium were delivered via the U.S. postal service by terrorists. The very mention of anthrax has the potential to set off a panic, but what is anthrax, what are its symptoms, and why is it so dangerous? Anthrax, Second Edition looks at the history of this deadly disease, from biblical times to the present, and investigates possible treatments to protect humans against it. This revised edition provides relevant, up-to-date information about anthrax and what doctors and scientists are doing to combat this threat.The chapters include: A Cloud of Death; The Fifth Plague; Human Anthrax; Deadly Letters (Outbreak 2001); Diagnosing and Treating Anthrax; Anthrax Vaccine; and Anthrax and Bioterrorism.
