By Stefan H. E. Kaufmann

The threat from infectious diseases has increased with globalization. Throughout the history of mankind, epidemics have eradicated whole regions, started the migration of peoples and decided wars. They continue to leave their mark on societies, as well as influencing politics and economies.

The New Plagues: Pandemics and Poverty in a Globalized World explores the strategies of microbes in conjunction with the economic impact of epidemics. In particular, it looks at the conflict between rich and poor with regard to outbreaks, and introduces possible strategies for containment.

Stefan H. E. Kaufmann is Professor for Microbiology and Immunology as well as founding director of the Max-Planck Institute for Infection Biology in Berlin. He is also President of EFIS (the European Federation of Immunological Societies).
