Drake and Love take us from the dawn of recorded history through the present date.  On this journey we learn that pandemic disease is a horrible scourge that has caused immense suffering, countless deaths, and in some cases, radically altered the course of history. That said, the ability of our ancestors' immune systems to overcome these diseases, plus the knowledge about germs, sanitation, and good public health practices that we've learned over the course of history are the reasons that we are alive today and are partly why this is an age of unprecedented prosperity.
