History of AIDS
Emergence and Origin of a Modern Pandemic
Mirko D. Grmek

Translated by Russell C. Maulitz and Jacalyn Duffin


By drawing on the latest discoveries in virology, microbiology, and immunology, Mirko Grmek depicts the AIDS epidemic not as an isolated incident but as part of the long, but far from peaceful, coexistence of humans and viruses.
