The Natural History of Human Influenza
This book is calling attention to the many aspects of the behavior of epidemic influenza and of its causal viruses that the current belief appears woefully inadequate to explain, despite modifications that have been introduced to overcome difficulties. We have also described various alternative theories of which the new concept seems to provide the most comprehensive and plausible epidemiology.
