"Pandemics does a fabulous job of covering the kinds of contagious diseases that threaten human life today as well as giving succinct historical expamples of past pandemics. The text is easy to understand even when describing some of the scientific and medical aspects." --VOYA, Dec. 2007


"This well-organized, illustrated study covers the control and prevention of pandemics and factors that contribute to the spread of disease, such as pollution, poverty, overpopulation, and globalization. Many individual threats are explored, including smallpox, HIV/AIDS, avian flu, and anthrax." --Curriculum Connections, Fall 2007
