In the first book dedicated to this subject, Peter Bartrip examines how myxomatosis reached and spread in the UK. He argues that it was not the government who was responsible, as many thought at the time, but for the first time Bartrip names the individual who may have deliberately brought myxomatosis from France. Bartrip tracks the response of government and other interested parties and considers the impact of rabbit de-population on agriculture and the natural environment. The cultural significance of this disease raises topical and controversial issues which are important if we are to learn lessons from more recent animal disease epidemics such as foot and mouth, BSE and H5N1 avian influenza.
