Join Judy Woodruff and Charles Kenny as they discuss Kenny’s new book, The Plague Cycle, a history of mankind’s battles with infectious disease. The Plague Cycle examines the relationship between civilization, globalization, prosperity, and infectious disease over the past five millennia through to the pandemic of Covid-19. Harnessing history, economics, and public health, it charts the impact of remarkable progress against disease but also the considerable threats that remain.
