Editorial Reviews

Review


"This book is an intriguing look at the world of viruses and in particular the epidemiology of viruses."--Choice


"I recommend The Invisible Enemy to anyone with questions about the nature of viruses and their role in human diseases...The Invisible Enemy is a clear and powerful beacon that penetrates the increasingly dense fog of media reports, folklore and myths""--New Scientist


"Professor Crawford writes in a clear and accessible manner, which successfully conveys her fascination with the subject, and poses lots of interesting questions. Recommended reading for microbiologists; highly recommended for journalists, politicians and the public seeking understanding of big topical issues such as AIDS/HIV and BSE/CJD.""--Microbiology Today


"...this fascinating book provides a rapid and accessible introduction to modern virology"."--Nature
