A fascinating book on the impact vectors and especially mosquitoes have had and continue to have on our world. There is a reason why Africa is referred to as the Dark Continent. America faced malaria and yellow fever like many other parts of the world, but was able to defeat this threat through public health measures. Other parts of the world continue to struggle with these infections and these vectors. The reduction in the use of DDT has had a huge impact on the re-emergence of malaria and the deaths associated with this has been staggering. The occasional outbreaks of dengue fever in southern Texas and the new West Nile virus and new mosquitos that have been introduced to the US potentially could have impacts on our society which we are not accustomed too.Was this review helpful?
