AIDS, Lyme disease, and the deadly hantavirus are just a few of the dozens of new diseases to arrive in recent years. Old ones such as TB and cholera have returned with sharper virulence. Where do new diseases come from? Why are old ones back as vicious changelings? Why now?

Thus we hasten microbes' evolution and our own, making the world a global village for diseases

Biography of a germ by Arno Karlen( Book )

"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

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 140 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."
