- Edited by Anthony Fooks and Alan Jackson who are renown researchers in this subject and has gathered a team of experts to detail the science, treatment, and control of rabies
- Completely revised, the Fourth Edition presents rabies as a re-emergent infection with greater emphasis on a global perspective of the disease
- Includes new chapters the evolution of the rabies virus and on modelling rabies control and includes full-color figures that highlight important information in microscopic studies

Dr. Fooks holds an Honorary Visiting Professor in the Department of Veterinary Pathology at the University of Liverpool, UK and at the Institute for Infection and Immunity at St George's Medical School, University of London, UK. His present role is Lead Scientist for International Development at The Animal and Plant Health Agency in the UK. Since 2002, he was appointed director of a World Health Organisation Communicable Disease Surveillance and Response Collaborating Centre for the characterisation of rabies and rabies-related viruses. In 2006, he was appointed a Designated OIE Reference Expert for Rabies. In 2018, he was elected as a member of the International Committee for the Taxonomy of Viruses Rhabdovirus Study Group. Dr Fooks is an Associate Editor for the journal, Vaccine. Dr Fooks has research projects focused on RNA viruses, especially viral diseases of the CNS and emerging / exotic viral zoonoses with a specialist interest in rabies pathogenesis and immunity.
