A Summer Plague: Polio and Its Survivors
Yale University Press, 1997/09/11 - 384 ページ
This book is the most comprehensive and compelling account of the century's polio epidemics yet written. Interweaving biographical, political, social, and medical history, Tony Gould -- a distinguished British writer and himself a polio survivor -- traces the rise and fall of the epidemic and describes the individuals who were influential in its treatment and conquest.
"The definitive book on the subject.... (Gould) writes vividly and feelingly of the scientific, social, and human aspects of this one terrifying affliction". -- Parade
"Gould does ample justice to the entire panorama...described in a colorful, fluid style....There are many proofs of its truth, among which is now the simple eloquence of Tony Gould when he writes about things he knows well, when he tells his deeply affecting stories of those who have endured polio, and his own story, too". -- Sherwin B. Nuland, The New Republic
"This (is a) meticulously researched and beautifully written account of the disease and its impact on human affairs". -- Bernard Dixon, Biologist

Review: A Summer Plague: Polio and Its Survivorsユーザー レビュー - Goodreads
This book was a bit of a hotch potch. Sort of a history of polio in the 20th century, a bit about Salk and Sabin, a lot of oral history type stuff from survivors - sort of a three-in-one.
