'The reader will be impressed by the high quality of the research and the urgent import of the findings. Much of the history has been assembled from relatively inaccessible sources, some of which are in danger of being lost, in all the relevant languages. At the same time, there is the strong sense that there remains much to consider with respect to the future of vaccination.'
