The Fever: How Malaria Has Ruled Humankind for 500,000 Years


A “tour-de-force history of malaria… riveting.” The New York Times

In recent years, malaria has emerged as a cause célèbre for voguish philanthropists. Bill Gates, Bono and Laura Bush are only a few of the personalities who have lent their names – and opened their pocketbooks – in hopes of stopping the disease. Still, in a time when every emergent disease inspires waves of panic, why haven’t we done more to tame one of our oldest foes? Sonia Shah, acclaimed author of The Fever, will discuss the science and
politics behind this fascinating and vexing disease.
