FirstMoreThere are few topics more distressing than disease, yet there are few books more darkly delightful than this timeless classic about the histories of microbial diseases, rats, and lice, and the scientists and doctors who combatted them.

Rats, Lice and History is a book written by biologist Hans Zinsser on the subject of typhus , a disease on which he performed significant research. Zinsser frames the book as a biography of the infectious disease, tracing its path through history. An important theme of the book is the according to Zinsser, underappreciated effect infectious diseases such as typhus had on the course of history, a topic which would later be treated in other popular works such as Plagues and Peoples and Guns, Germs and Steel. Written for a lay audience, Zinsser's humorous and literate style was well received by readers, and it was widely read on its release, and has since gone through many editions. The book is divided into sixteen chapters. Having received a classical education that emphasized liberal arts ,  Zinsser refers to a number of classical works throughout the text, occasionally quoting passages in Latin , French , and German without translation. Rats, Lice and History received an overwhelmingly positive critical reception on its release.
He was not one who appeared to be a different person to different individuals; rather these attributes and accomplishments were intimately interwoven, continually seeking expression in words or deeds. Through his personality and presentation of outstanding texts in infection and bacteriology, he exerted a great and profound influence on his students in the classroom and his research associates in the laboratory at a time when these subjects were approaching professional maturity in America. Hans was born in New York City, the first generation of German-born parents.
