Getting Started with Pandemics

As a way of getting into the literature on pandemics and epidemics, I’m setting out a few works that have been recommended to me in different places:


Honigsbaum, Mark. The Pandemic Century: One Hundred Years of Panic, Hysteria, and Hubris (2019).

Topical Collection: Microbes, Networks, Knowledge: Disease Ecology in the 20th Century (2017-2020)

Nancy Bristow, American Pandemic: The Lost Worlds of the 1918 Influenza Epidemic (2017)
