Yellow Fever, Black Goddess
The Coevolution of People and PlaguesBook - 1996
By focusing on microorganisms that cause human suffering, Wills examines the evolution of diseases, viruses, and plagues from their "point of view," producing a fascinating glimpse into the complex lives of microbes and how they manifest with often disastrous results. He explains that when we alter nature in such ways as burning forests and disrupting the food chain, human beings unwittingly unleash diseases by destroying their host resources.
