By the year 2000, forty million people across the world will be infected with a lethal virus. AIDS will kill more than the Black Death, more than World War II, more, perhaps, than all the wars and plagues in history.

But how did we get AIDS? The White Death is the chilling account of the most likely explanation -- and how the world scientific community reacted to it. If the theory is true, then new plagues could be lying in wait, ready to enter humanity by the same loophole.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0207190410, Paperback)

A true story about the development of the AIDS virus. Using the theory that the virus mutated from a monkey virus during a mass testing of a polio vaccine in late 1950s Africa, as US pharmaceutical companies raced to be the first to develop a vaccine, the book asks "Could it happen again?"
