Salk's vaccine, Sabin's oral live-virus vaccine, the March of Dimes, field testing and animal research are detailed in this study of the war on polio. According to PW , although some of Smith's sociological interpretations seem dubious, ``this exciting, dramatic narrative tells a comprehensive story of the conquest of polio and sheds fresh light on the politics of medicine.''
