Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0821228501, Hardcover)In a world convulsed by war and hatred, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, begun in 1988, stands as a rare and inspiring example of what can be done when the world works together against a common enemy. Sebasti"o Salgado, known for his dedication to the plight of the world's dispossessed in Workers (1994) and Migrations (2000), traveled to five polio endemic countries--Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Pakistan, Somalia, and Sudan--to photograph the campaign to eradicate polio by 2005. He shares those photographs here. The book also includes a substantial essay by UNICEF writer Siddharth Dube, a comprehensive history of the disease presented in the form of an illustrated timeline; and information on how to help. THE END OF POLIO is an inspiring testament to the possibility for successful cooperation between nations and communities on levels ranging from local to global, as well as an important volume for those whose lives have been touched by polio.
