Disease and History
The current pandemic has forced us to relive and rethink the impact of disease on history. Before the age of modern medicine, lethal epidemics and fatal disease shaped human history as much—arguably more—than did geography, the acts of great men and women, and the events of politics and wars. Learn how plague, influenza, yellow fever, and small pox (as well as the “great pox,” syphilis), and especially cholera, powerfully changed the direction of the march of time… as the Covid-19 virus is doing again.
