During this period bacteria which cause disease and death were identified and soon cures or vaccines against them were developed. Medicine was revolutionised. Many men of prodigious talent took part in this momentous transformation.

The story shifts from country to country - from Jenners rural practice in England to Pasteurs laboratories in the breweries and silk farms of France, and on to Kochs surgery in Prussia. It is a narrative as exciting as any novel. But it is more than just that. Robert Reid is able to use the germ theory as a case-study in the methods and responsibilities of scientists.

A great discovery may turn out to be a double-edged sword, yet the process of discovering ways to control nature must go on if a world saved from disease is not to see, instead, men dying of starvation.
