MAHV’s own Dr. John Froude Publishes Book on History of Pandemics

We are proud to announce that our very own Dr. John Froude recently published his own book “Plagued: Pandemics from the Black Death to Covid-19 and Beyond”. We recently held a small staff book signing event to commemorate the recent publication of Dr. Froude’s book!

Plagued tells the stories of yellow fever, smallpox, syphilis, the bubonic plague, influenza, typhus, cholera, malaria, tuberculosis, AIDS, and Covid-19. Blending science and narrative, Dr. Froude explores not only the unstoppable march of pestilence and its effects but our intimate relationship with bacteria and viruses.

Dr. Froude also explores the complex wonder that is human immunity, which itself is the consequence of an arms race between microbes and our animal ancestors that started 3.5 billion years ago. Along the way, we meet the dogged geniuses who have brought us back from the brink and see what it might take to do it again.

We have limited copies of Dr. Froude’s book “Plagued – from the Black Death to Covid 19 and Beyond” at MAHV’s Kingston location for $20 per book.

You can also find his book on Amazon, Kindle, in Audiobook format, and more.
