A fascinating study of one tiny insect, its devastating role in history, and its growing threat to mankind. No creature has touched directly the lives of more human beings than the mosquito. It has been a nuisance, a pollinator of plants and an angel of death all over the globe. Here, Spielman tells the history of man’s struggle to live with the mosquito, from the defeat of barbarian armies seeking to invade malaria-infested Rome, to the death of thousands of Frenchmen working on the Panama Canal, to the recent panic over the West Nile Virus in N.Y. Ronald Ross proved the mosquito’s connection to malaria in 1897, but in the following century there were catastrophic failures of mosquito control, and now the spread of the disease has accelerated.
