Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 6^-12. Commonly considered children's diseases, measles and rubella have experienced a resurgence in recent years, reminding us that they not only strike people of a variety of ages but also are potentially deadly diseases. Tracing their medical history from ancient to modern times, this solid work considers symptoms and transmission, including discussion about outbreaks on college campuses and among preschool children that have forced the medical community to reexamine how and when immunizations should be given. The authors also explore the development of the measles vaccine and explain why the diseases continue to pose a health problem. An outstanding curricular supplement for health and biology study, as well as a handy, readable reference source for students and staff. Time line, source notes, glossary, reading list. --Mary Romano Marks"
