Global Disease Eradication: The Race for the Last Child, by Cynthia A. Needham and Richard Canning (Washington, DC: ASM Press 2003) – For the novice and enthusiast alike, this book is the most readable history of disease eradication available. It chronicles three eradication campaigns (Malaria, Small Pox, Polio), the lessons we’ve learned from past failures, and sticky issues to consider. Highly recommended.
