Author’s note
Under the influence
A beautiful anachronism
Life during wartime
The pricking of my thumb
Malcolm in the beginning
The Semmelweis effect
In the blood
Severe and acute? That has to be bad!
The pox under our noses
Cultures that stink
Like a blowtorch to the groin
So common it can’t be a disease
Let’s not talk about sex
The Yellow Pages
Sleepers, wake
Index to pathogens and diseases
