First published in 1903, this book presents a wide-ranging study of rabies. Three key areas of the disease are explored: its causation in the individual organism, its place among germ diseases with the end of bacterial agency in the animal economy, and its origin in the animal kingdom. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in epidemiology and the historical understanding of rabies.
