Virus Hunter : Thirty Years of Battling Hot Viruses Around the World
Paperback

Virus Hunter:
Thirty Years of Battling Hot Viruses Around the World
by C. J. Peters, Mark Olshaker
Hardcover (1997)

Virus Hunter : Thirty Years of Battling Hot Viruses Around the World
Hardcover

Books such as Richard Preston's The Hot Zone thrust the deadly Ebola virus into the spotlight, but they can't match the first-person perspective of Virus Hunter. Author C. J. Peters is an ex-army colonel who has spent his professional life studying deadly pathogens in the lab and in the wild. He spins a drama- and adrenaline-filled true tale of virus hunters, which is gripping despite its occasional tendency to grow verbose and detour into personal history. Peters offers a look at crippling diseases not only through the eyes of a scientist, but also with the perspective of an insider in the defense establishment, painting a chilling picture of the potential of biological terrorism or outright warfare.

Virus Ground Zero: Stalking the Killer Viruses With the Centers for Disease Control Virus Ground Zero:
Stalking the Killer Viruses With the Centers for Disease Control
by Edward Regis
Hardcover (1996)

Ever since Richard Preston's startling book The Hot Zone, killer viruses like Ebola, Lassa, Marburg and the hanta viruses have been huge at the box office--replacing bigger monsters as the scariest of horrors. Regis tells the story of how the Center for Disease Control (CDC) dealt efficiently with the most recent real-life outbreak of Ebola in Kikwit, Zaire in 1995. Although they never found the source of the outbreak, CDC scientists stopped it completely within a month. Initial panic by local medical authorities was stemmed with swift isolation of the infected and the training of staff to deal with this incurable horror using the latest technology: "rubber gloves, plastic gowns and face masks." Regis suggests that the threat from viruses has been overblown; his account of the CDC's heroic efficiency is certainly reassuring.
