The book describes the natural history of myxoma virus in American rabbits and the history of its introduction into European rabbits at length. The changes in rabbit and virus over the last forty years provide the classical example of coevolution of a virus and its vertebrate host and a paradigmatic model for the understanding of an emerging infectious disease. Rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus has been spreading in Australia for only three years, but in some areas has been very effective. Written by leading world experts in animal virology and the history of medicine.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This monumental book tells the story of one of the most complex and fascinating scientific experiments of the twentieth century....An extraordinary book, clearly written, impeccably documented and richly illustrated, which has great relevance to many contemporary concerns such as evolutionary biology, the development of drug-resistant parasites, and the emergence of new diseases."--W. F. Bynum, MD, PhD, FRCP
"Without doubt, this book will become the standard against which all other reviews in this field will be judged. In summary, a marvelous book. A must for all decent institutional libraries and strongly recommended for all those individuals with an interest in the history of our understanding of diseases."--Australian Veterinary Journal
