Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Experience a bracing ride through a storm of plague, disease, and biological warfare with the brave medical professionals of the Centers for Disease Control. Ellen Archer coolly delivers the story of the CDC's inception and its battles with polio, smallpox, AIDS, anthrax, and SARS, along with other terrifying diseases and the organisms that cause them. Hear the personal stories of the doctors who place themselves in the cross hairs of viral assassins. Of special interest is "shoe-leather research," through which doctors trace disease origins to such places as bathhouses, bars, and African jungles. BEATING BACK THE DEVIL is real-life drama with real high stakes. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
