About The Book

One is often led to believe thatmosquito-borne diseases suchas malaria and its companiondiseases, dengue andchikungunya, are backward andrural diseases that have verylittle to do with urbanizationand development. However, itis often just the reverse. Thesediseases have been around forover 5,00,000 years and continueto flourish even as we continue toprogress as a race. In The Fever,journalist Sonia Shah sets out toaddress this concern, deliveringa timely, inquisitive chronicleof malaria and its influenceon human lives. Through thecenturies, she finds, weveinvested our hopes in a panoplyof drugsand technologies, andinvariably those hopes have beendashed. From the settling of theNew World to the constructionof the Panama Canal, throughwartimes and the advances of theIndustrial Revolution, Shah tracksmalarias jagged ascent and thetragedies in its wake, revealing aparasite every bit as persistentas the insects that carry it. Withdistinguished prose and originalreporting from Panama, Malawi,Cameroon, India and elsewhere,The Fever captures the curiouslyfascinating, devastating historyof this long-standing thorn onthe side of humanity.
