A Chance to Live
Eminent science writer June Goodfield gives a fascinating chronicle of the campaign to immunize the children of more than 100 countries against six killer diseases by 1990. Competing against the strong-willed leaders of WHO and UNICEF, and other agencies, Goodfield and her associates worked with an urgency and strength of heroic proportions to overcome all odds and accomplish their mission. 20 photographs.
