Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb traces the spread of several new animal-related diseases, including "mad cow disease" and others that have spread throughout Europe and may soon emerge in the United States. 100,000 first printing. Tour.

Review:

The British epidemic of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or "mad cow" disease, is only one in a series of mysterious and often fatal afflictions that have baffled scientists for more than 40 years. Deadly Feasts is a compelling account of decades of research into a family of diseases ranging from kuru in primitive human tribes to scrapie in sheep. Richard Rhodes traces the attempts of scientists to understand these strange diseases, which are now known to be transmitted by ingesting the brain or nervous tissue of infected creatures, even though the pathogen itself is an enigma that seems to be neither bacterial nor viral. Deadly Feasts is packed with historical, anthropological, and epidemiological detail, and is graphic and occasionally even alarming in its speculations.
