- How Fear and Fantasy Have Fueled Epidemics from the Black Death to Avian Flu
- By: Phillip Alcabes
- Narrated by: Simon Prebble
- Length: 8 hrs and 27 mins
The average individual is far more likely to die in a car accident than from a communicable disease...yet we are still much more fearful of the epidemic. Even at our most level-headed, the thought of an epidemic can inspire terror. As Philip Alcabes persuasively argues in Dread, our anxieties about epidemics are created not so much by the germ or microbe in question - or the actual risks of contagion - but by the unknown, the undesirable, and the misunderstood.
Informative but dull
