    Description
    First published over half-a-century ago, Rats, Lice and History still has the power both to shock and to entertain. It tells the tragic story of the struggle between humanity and its humble but deadly enemies, the organisms of disease. From the pestilence which contributed to the downfall of Rome to the dancing manias of medieval Europe, the aristocracy's fashion for wearing wigs and the role of typhus in the First World War, Hans Zinsser, a distinguished bacteriologist, throws a flood of light on the way disease and epidemics have shaped human history.
