Foreign Bodies: Pandemics, Vaccines, and the Health of Nations
by Simon Schama
Foreign Bodies is a book about pandemics and vaccines across the millennia by Anglo-American historian Simon Schama. Schama is a professor at Columbia but also a brilliant popular historian, very talented at getting on top of huge amounts of information and getting it across in a memorable way. This book looks like a good way to say goodbye and get a historical perspective on the Covid pandemic, even as Schama predicts more will follow.
