Virologists, immunologists, microbiologists--but remarkably no epidemiologists--describe new diseases that have come out of Asia or been especially prevalent there over the past few years, particularly avian flu, SARS, and HIV/AIDS. In the course, they also question whether Asia is just Western media's traditional whipping boy, or really does produce more infectious diseases than elsewhere, and if so, why.
