Reviews of : Rabid by Bill Wasik PDF Book
Inside this Book – I read this micro-history for a book challenge, but came away super impressed and want to read more of this genre. This one, specifically, is well written and concise. I love how he reaches into the zeitgeist and pulls out the art works from each period that mirror the particular rabies scare that is occurring. He references Goya (my favorite artist) in this section: Around the same time, the Spanish painter Francisco Goya was using spectral, bat-like figures to symbolize vampiric forces. Great shadowy bats hover above a slumped figure of Reason, in The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters, and also, in There is Plenty to Suck, behind three murderous hags as they prepare to consume a basketful of babies. His Los caprichos illustrate a series of vampire-like figures in the act of devouring sleeping innocents.
Inside this book –Rabid PDF Book by Bill Wasik – An engrossing, lively history of a fearsome and misunderstood virus that binds man and dog. The most fatal virus known to science, rabies — a disease that spreads avidly from animals to humans — kills nearly one hundred percent of its victims once the infection takes root in the brain. In this critically acclaimed exploration, journalist Bill Wasik and veterinarian Monica Murphy chart four thousand years of the history, science, and cultural mythology of rabies. From Greek myths to zombie flicks, from the laboratory heroics of Louis Pasteur to the contemporary search for a lifesaving treatment, Rabid is a fresh and often wildly entertaining look at one of humankind’s oldest and most fearsome foes.
