    500,000 Americans died over a 6 week period; is this the latest thriller from Hollywood, or a piece of American history?

In Flu, Ms. Kolata unravels the mystery of this lethal virus. From Alaska to Norway, from the streets of Hong Kong to the corridors of the White House, Kolata tracks the race to recover the live pathogen and probes the fear that has impelled government policy ever since.
