Chronologic account of epidemics of infectious disease beginning with the classical period, running through the great medieval catastrophes and the sweep of syphilis through renaissance Europe, up to modern epidemics such as that of influenza in 1918. This is not an exhaustive account for professionals but it could be read with profit by paramedical and beginning medical students for cultural background.
