"An important book with serious claims to make about the nature of the disease environments of Roman Italy, with wider implications for our understanding of Mediterranean history."-- American Historical Review
"Bringing together ancient literary and archaeological evidence, comparative historical material on malaria, and the latest scientific research on the disease and its ecology, Sallares shows that [the malarial strain] P. Falciparum can be traced far back into Greek and Italian history.... The demographic impact of this expanding pattern of disease is Sallares's main concern, and he provides a broad overview and a series of local studies to demonstrate it."--Times Literary Supplement
