This stunning collection unearths some of the most wonderful microscopic images of human and animal disease and medicine ever made possible by technology in unprecedented detail. Understand the science behind the image - whether it's the effect of malaria on a red blood cell, the presence of E. coli bacteria on a dollar bill, morphine crystals or the bubonic plague carried by a flea. Each micrograph is accompanied by simple explanations of the cells or chemicals shown, as well as descriptions of the history behind each disease and cure. Discover how some of the most devastating diseases can be incredibly beautiful up close, and find out more about the microscopic battlegrounds within our bodies."--Back cover.
