9781598744835: The Ten-Thousand Year Fever: Rethinking Human and Wild-Primate Malarias (New Frontiers in Historical Ecology)

Malaria is one of the oldest recorded diseases in human history, and its 10,000-year relationship to primates can teach us why it will be one of the most serious threats to humanity in the 21st century. In this pathbreaking book Loretta Cormier integrates a wide range of data from molecular biology, ethnoprimatology, epidemiology, ecology, anthropology, and other fields to reveal the intimate relationships between culture and environment that shape the trajectory of a parasite. She argues against the entrenched distinction between human and non-human malarias, using ethnoprimatology to develop a new understanding of cross-species exchange. She also shows how current human-environment interactions, including deforestation and development, create the potential for new forms of malaria to threaten human populations. This book is a model of interdisciplinary integration that will be essential reading in fields from anthropology and biology to public health.

About the Author:

Loretta A. Cormier is associate professor of anthropology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She is author of Kinship with Monkeys, the Guajį Foragers of Eastern Brazil (Columbia University Press) and numerous articles in historical ecology and ethnoprimatology (human-nonhuman primate interactions).

Review:

"Loretta Cormier's book on the 'ten-thousand year fever' is a major contribution to the subject. In sum, the book is well written, though of a bioarchaeological inclination, and there is an extensive bibliography. Prehistorians of the future will have to bravely tackle this kind of literature, as it will be a firm part of palaeoecological research."--Don Bothwell, Antiquity
""The Ten-Thousand Year Fever "is an ambitious work that assimilates ideas from several specialties in defining the natural history of primate malaria. [T]his book raises many issues that are extremely relevant to the control of malaria, especially where primate populations converge with regions nearing elimination of the disease. By understanding the human-primate dynamics and ecological changes that lead to the emergence of hyper-endemic malaria, we are better placed to ensure the next 10,000 years are mostly malaria-free."--Alasdair Hill, Lancet
