The Mosquito by Timothy C. Winegard
"An important thing to keep in mind before reading further:
This book is not a biology/parasitology/virology/epidemiology book. This is a history book (it says so on the front cover) written by a history professor (it says so on the back cover). The au" Read more of this review »
The Mosquito by Timothy C. Winegard
"Very fascinating read. If you’re into epidemiology, disease and history, then this is definitely the book for you. Starting from biblical times all way up to modern day, this book covers the history of the mosquito and how it affects humans. "
The Mosquito by Timothy C. Winegard
"This is a history book. There are a lot of bad reviews here on GR complaining that the book is not science. This is not a secret, see the title. It is not a science book. It isn't even really a history of science book, though that is a bit of an unde" Read more of this review »

“Given that Americans currently consume 25% of the world’s coffee, Starbucks ought to raise a toasting glass to the tiny mosquito. “Malaria even explains how the nation of the 1773 Boston Tea Party,” affirms Alex Perry in Lifeblood, “became today’s land of the latte.”
Timothy C. Winegard, The Mosquito: A Human History of Our Deadliest Predator

“Blood type O seems to be the vintage of choice over types A and B or their blend. People with blood type O get bitten twice as often as those with type A, with type B falling somewhere in between.”
Timothy C. Winegard, The Mosquito: A Human History of Our Deadliest Predator

“The argument here is straightforward: In the American Revolution the British southern campaigns ultimately led to defeat at Yorktown in October 1781 in part because their forces were much more susceptible to malaria than were the American…. [T]he balance tipped because Britain’s grand strategy committed a larger proportion of the army to malarial (and yellow fever) zones.” A full 70% of the British Army that marched into this southern mosquito maelstrom in 1780 was recruited from the poorer, famished regions of Scotland and the northern counties of England, outside the malaria belt of Pip’s Fenland marshes. Those who had already served some time in the colonies had done so in the northern zone of infection and had not yet been seasoned to American malaria.”
