"Rabies, the most recent title in Greenwood's 'Biographies of Disease' series, provides a good basic introduction to rabies epidemiology. It is quite suitable for general/non-science readers interested in learning more about the nature of this disease. . . . Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates; general readers." - Choice
"In Biographies of Disease: Rabies, P. Dileep Kumar has provided a treatise that combines historical perspectives with a medical review that makes this text relevant for infectious disease specialists, public health workers, physicians, and laypersons interested in a disease that still terrifies health care professionals and laypersons. This text will be exciting to readers drawn to the confluence of medicine and history. Medically unsophisticated readers can understand the text because of Kumar's careful explanation of the clinical, microbiological, and immunologic features of rabies as well as his inclusion of a helpful glossary. This keeps the book relevant for those seeking to better understand the effect rabies has and will have on society. Kumar has meticulously reviewed the salient features, history, prevention, treatment, public health aspects, and future trends of rabies. . . . an excellent current reference that is both informative and enjoyable to read.
