Pathogenesis: How Germs Made History

The latest science reveals that infectious diseases are not just something that happens tous, but a fundamental part of who we are. Dr Jonathan Kennedy, who teaches global public health at Queen Mary University of London, will reveal that we have been thinking about the survival of the fittest all wrong and how, since the dawn of humanity to the Industrial Revolution and beyond, infectious diseases have fundamentally altered the course of human history. Germs have in fact shaped humanity at every stage, from the first success of homo sapiens to an Indonesian volcano that helped cause the Black Death,and set Europe on the road to capitalism. Jaw-dropping stuff.
