For as long as humans have lived on this earth, nature has done its very best to rid the planet of us. This book not only looks back at a number of times in recorded history where the future of our very existence was put in jeopardy, but also asks whether we could survive a resurgence of these pandemics… or even an entirely new as-yet undetected threat. From the plague of Justinian, through the Black Death and Spanish flu, to the 2015/16 Zika outbreak, the authors explore how each epidemic began, spread, and threatened to wipe us out. Although at times it may be a scary read, this fascinating book takes the reader on an unmissable journey through some of the darkest and most worrying threats to mankind.
