"Catching Breath--the story of one of the world's oldest diseases--looks at the hidden biology behind the interaction of Mycobacterium tuberculosis with its human host, and shows how drug resistance, the HIV epidemic, poverty and inequality work together to ensure that TB remains one of the most serious problems in world medicine."--Jacket flap.
