You can read all about Ebola virus and a host of other deadly emerging
viruses in one of the best books I have read called The Coming Plague.
Sorry I can't remember the author's name offhand, and my wife has
carted it off to Britain for some light reading on her trip.  It is 
remarkably easy to read and it provides some remarkable insight into the
politics and personalities involved in the study of these outbreaks
(which also include HIV).  As a non-virologist, I found it absolutely
fascinating and no I am not recieving any royalties ;-)
