520    "An intelligent and compelling examination of the science 
       of immunity, the public policy implications of vaccine 
       denial, and the real-world outcomes of failing to 
       vaccinate. If you have a child in school, you may have 
       heard stories of long-dormant diseases suddenly 
       reappearing--cases of measles, mumps, rubella, and 
       whooping cough cropping up everywhere from elementary 
       schools to Ivy League universities. How does a small group
       of people's failure to vaccinate have the potential to 
       affect future generations? Are we at a turning point in 
       medical history, where deadly diseases, once dormant, 
       flourish anew? Will our children face summers of abandoned
       swimming pools due to polio outbreaks just like our great-
       grandparents did? Pioneering medical researcher Michael 
       Kinch tells the remarkable story of vaccine-preventable 
       infectious diseases in [this book], which explains how the
       science of immunity actually works and places immunology 
       within the context of its social and political 
       implications. While detailing the history of vaccine 
       invention, from the steppes of Mongolia to the 
       serendipitous connection between cowpox and smallpox, 
       Kinch reveals the ominous reality that our victories 
       against vaccine-preventable diseases are not permanent--
       and could easily be undone. ... Between Hope and Fear 
       illuminates the fascinating intersection of science, 
       technology, and disease that has helped eradicate many of 
       the deadliest plagues known to man."--Jacket.
