The Ghost Map
[the Story of London's Most Terrifying Epidemic--and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World]Downloadable Audiobook - 2006
A thrilling historical account of the worst cholera outbreak in Victorian London--and a brilliant exploration of how Dr. John Snow's solution revolutionized the way we think about disease, cities, science, and the modern world. The ghost map is an endlessly compelling and utterly gripping account of that London summer of 1854, from the microbial level to the macrourban-theory level--including, most important, the human level.
