The book is the first publication to collate the research activities undertaken on melioidosis, since the disease was first described in Burma in 1912, and later in Australia in 1949.

The 400-page book contains 10 sections and more than 35 chapters. A total of 69 leading clinicians and researchers from eight countries have contributed to the entries covering areas of epidemiology, clinical aspects, treatment protocols, genome structure, microbiology and host-pathogen interactions, culminating in the first comprehensive compilation of research and clinical findings on this intriguing disease.
