Beating Back the Devil

Maryn McKenna

Disease detectives of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention run towards disease outbreaks while most people run away. Maryn McKenna's Beating Back the Devil follows the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS), who track and prevent disease outbreaks and bioterrorist attacks around the world, even in anonymity. McKenna offers a riveting narrative of EIS's first class of disease detectives to confront both naturally occurring outbreaks and man-made threats after September 11. They are the researchers donning yellow suits to battle every new disease before it turns into an epidemic. Beating Back the Devil is an urgent and compelling book that takes readers inside the world of medical detectives working to stop the next epidemic before it's too late.
