about

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.

There have been many times when the world's population was ravaged by diseases, and in some areas almost completely wiped out. The most horrifying events in history have nearly all been caused by nature, and when pandemics used to happen people thought that Judgment Day had finally come. Modern medicine has done much to protect us, but new dangers are arising as diseases change, and become more infectious, quicker acting, and deadlier in response to the use of antibiotics and other drugs. This book provides an introduction to the concept of pandemics and tells the story of some of the worst in history.

Project Webster represents a new publishing paradigm, allowing disparate content sources to be curated into cohesive, relevant, and informative books. To date, this content has been curated from Wikipedia articles and images under Creative Commons licensing, although as Project Webster continues to increase in scope and dimension, more licensed and public domain content is being added. We believe books such as this represent a new and exciting lexicon in the sharing of human knowledge.
