A World After Super-Plague

Can you imagine what our lives would be like after an outbreak of super-plague? How would people respond to the danger and how would medical professionals cope? What would be the threats to public order and to the things we take for granted, such as the supply of food and energy? This book traces the possible consequences of a global event on this scale, with ideas and evidence based on similar scenarios that are a part of fact and fiction.

Reviews

Science Books & Films - Donald F. Logsdon, Jr., Union Institute and University, Sacramento, CA

"TWO STARS! The book includes a useful timeline, a glossary and a list of resources for additional information. It also includes numerous pictures of health providers, maps and diagrams to show the spread of the pandemic. There are many sidebars asking questions about how a society should respond such as what are essential jobs in a pandemic. This is the kind of book that could inspire a student to become a health provider." - Science Books & Films

Library Media Connection - Candi Pierce Garry, Teacher Librarian, Hamilton (Ohio) High School

"Imagining a world changed forever by issues of biological proportions is scary, and this series pulls no punches. Based on scientific and historical evidence, each incident is examined via a hypothetical future disaster, which is then explained in detail. . . .Color photographs and sidebars add interest, and students are encouraged to explore their ideas with tips for story writing." - Library Media Connection

Booklist - Daniel Kraus

"This unsettling but wildly entertaining series imagines life on earth following any number of horrific events: an asteroid strike, nuclear meltdown, super-plague, etc. Imaginative and surprising—rarely does series nonfiction feel like a summer blockbuster." - Booklist
