Twenty years ago, the world thought that biomedical science would protect it. Then came the AIDS epidemic and more unfamiliar pathogens in its wake. Meanwhile, the neglected diseases of the third world festered. Robert S. Desowitz traces the history of these diseases and the issues we must confront-the morality and legality of patent laws, global warming, public support for the biochemical industry, the dissociation of medical professionals, and the threat of bioterrorism.
