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

18 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Man and Microbes, respected science writer Arno Karlen presents a dramatic panorama of the natural history of disease. Drawing on case studies and tales of medical detection, he uncovers the ills of ancient hunter-gatherers, relates the rise of diseases that came with each domesticated species, and exposes the origins of modern urban epidemics. Citing original sources and extensive research, Karlen recounts the terror of measles and smallpox that raked the ancient empires of Rome and China; the intertwined stories of leprosy and tuberculosis throughout thousands of years of history; the onslaught of European microbes that devastated the peoples of the Americas far more than did the firearms of their conquerors; and the much-forgotten influenza pandemic of 1918 that killed tens of millions. He also analyzes the most recent medical reports of mysterious new diseases from around the world and provides a view of how they have arisen and what they bode for the future

Biography of a germ by Arno Karlen( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and Chinese and held by 886 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

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

4 editions published between 1961 and 1969 in English and held by 135 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."

Other findings emerged from the data. One, previously unreported, is that some women attributed positive sexual changes to SLE. Also, links appeared between many women's sexual adaptation to lupus and their premorbid coping styles. None of the women felt that health professionals had adequately addressed their sexual concerns
