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

Just read the Harper's review of Sonia Shah's newest book. Lots of great info. Interested in reaching out to her about the film project...


“Human history marches to the beat of what? A big brass band? A choir singing hymns? The lub-dub of the human heart? Sonia Shah’s tour-de-force history of malaria will convince you that the real soundtrack to our collective fate is none of these: it is the syncopated whine-slap, whine-slap of man and mosquito duking it out over the eons.”
-- The New York Times
