From the dawn of human history through the modern day, disease has claimed more lives than natural disasters and war combined, and yet it remains an ineradicable menace. In this fascinating anecdotal history, the author of The Cathars and The Gnostics looks beyond the statistics, analyzing case studies including the Black Death, Spanish flu, cholera, leprosy, syphilis, cancer, AIDS, and Ebola, to deliver an epoch-spanning account of our attempt to understand and defeat disease. Along the way, Sean Martin profiles the scientists and medical professionals who devoted their lives to finding cures, and the book also includes an extensive glossary of diseases.
