Antibiotic resistance, now widened to be called antimicrobial resistance, is the world’s greatest public health risk and threat.  We are now so used to using antibiotics that it is almost unthinkable what would happen to our state of health if there were none available.  Or if the antibiotics don’t work anymore.

This book is a collection of articles written over two decades, tracing the antimicrobial resistance problem as it evolved through the years into a full blown crisis.  It also contains the author’s speaking notes at the UN General Assembly summit-level special event on AMR.   It provides news and opinions in popular language on various aspects of AMR.
