Man and microbes : disease and plagues in history and modern times by Arno Karlen( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Man and Microbes makes clear that infection is a natural and necessary part of life. It shows how the search for food, shelter, and a safer, more prosperous life has altered the environment, changed the dance of adaptation between humans and microbes, and generated new diseases. The means to surmount the growing public health crisis in our ever-accelerating global society lie in the same ingenuity that created it. Understanding the complex and vital relationships between man and microbe can help us tame or make truce with our microbial fellow travelers on planet Earth

Biography of a germ by Arno Karlen( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and Chinese and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb for short) is a tiny, pale spiral, invisible to the naked eye, yet no one could invent a life so ingenious, or one so tied to so many creatures' fates. Arno Karlen takes readers on a journey through Bb's world - its ancestry and evolution, its day-to-day life, its perilous travels through ticks, mice, and deer, and, finally, its collision with humanity. Its life evokes the vast ecological web in which we and Bb are threads."--Jacket

Superior by Charles Steinhacker( Book )

5 editions published between 1959 and 1974 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many thousands of years the great glaciers receded across North America, gouging out huge basins and leaving them filled with melting ice. From one group of these basins were created the Great Lakes, the largest concentration of fresh water in the entire world. Today, near the shores of these five lakes - live some 25 million people, many in big cities, such as Detroit, Milwaukee, Duluth, Gary, Toronto, Chicago, Cleveland, Erie, Buffalo, and Rochester. Each year the people living near the lakes consume 1.4 trillion gallons of water; industries depend on the lakes and their tributaries for an additional 2.7 trillion gallons. The Great Lakes system is also a major waterway, a vital transportation link between the Midwest and the Atlantic seaboard. With the completion of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1959, its position in the chain has become solidified. Over the five lakes there now flow each year more than 300 million tons of livestock, minerals, and wheat

White apples : a novella, stories and fables by Arno Karlen( Book )

4 editions published between 1961 and 1969 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"White Apples," the novella from which this book takes its title, is a touching and extremely powerful story of a doomed love affair. Annushka, its heroine, is one of the notable creations in contemporary fiction; few readers will finish her story without a strong emotional response. Among the six short stories included are two of particular brilliance: "The Clown," which comes close to being aminor classic, and the haunting "The Night Season." The collection also contains a dozen trenchant and fiverting "fables."
