Introduction to the Transaction Edition
Preface
In the nature of an explanation and an apology
Being a discussion of the relationship between science and art
Leading up to the definition of bacteria and other parasites, and digressing briefly into the question of the origin of life
On parasitism in general, and on the necessity of considering the changing nature of infectious diseases in the historical study of epidemics
Being a continuation of Chapter IV, but dealing more particularly with so-called new diseases and with some that have disappeared
Diseases of the ancient world: a consideration of the epidemic diseases which afflicted the ancient world
A continuation of the consideration of diseases of the ancients, with particular attention to epidemics and the fall of Rome
On the influence of epidemic diseases on political and military history, and on the relative unimportance of generals
On the louse: we are now ready to consider the environment which has helped to form the character of our subject
More about the louse: the need for this chapter will be apparent to those who have entered into the spirit of this biography
Much about rats - a little about mice
We are at last arriving at the point at which we can approach the subject of this biography directly
In which we consider the birth, childhood, and adolescence of typhus
In which we follow the earliest epidemic exploits of our disease
Young manhood: the period of early vigor and wild oats
Appraisal of a contemporary and prospects of future education and discipline
