    • Plagues and Peoples
      A novel by William H. McNeill
    • What was McNeill trying to prove?
      Thesis: Disease and plagues had a major impact on the population rate and greatly impacted world civilizations.
    • The first is the worst
      Mcneill believed that early humans had a major impact on the spread of disease.
      Theory of Evolution (early humans started in Africa)
    • Shift to Agrigculture
      Early humans/Changes in agriculture and human expansion
      Equilibrium (before Neolithic)
      Larger communities (with agriculture)
      Faster spread
      Animals domesticated (closer contact)
    • Rise and Fall
      Rome and Han declined
      Christianity and other religions spread
      People looked to God when disease struck
    • Eurasia and the Black Plague
      Called it ultimate depopulator
      Outbrakes in china and spread to rest of world
      Started after equilibrium was broken when mongols arrived and started trade routs back up-led to disease spreading again lead to black plague (out fo reach of human control)
    • Exchange
      New laws
      Syphillis debate
      Aztec Conquest
    • parasites
      Microparasites = can’t be seen with the human ice…wiped out population because they were unknown until the side effects of the disease were present and it was to late
      Macroparasites = large enough to be seen with the human eye..feed of hosts which can then transfer to new hosts therefore it is alive in two locations, spreading the disease faster and faster
    • 1700’s - now
      Modern Medicine
      Vaccinations
      1800’s = another epidemic (cholera)
