From Library Staff
In the 1970s, as a young man, the author was sent to Central Africa as part of a team tasked with identifying a grisly new virus. Crossing into the quarantine zone on the most dangerous missions, he studied local customs to determine how this disease--the Ebola virus--was spreading.
A microbiologist describes his adventure-filled career, discussing his time spent in Central Africa in the 1970s identifying the Ebola virus and his work there again in the 1980s as part of the area's first international AIDS efforts.
Imagine being one of the first scientists on the scene when the Ebola virus first appeared. This was just the first chapter in Peter Piot's astonishing career in epidemiology. The book will take you behind the scenes of the highly charged political world of international epidemiology.
