Dead Epidemiologists: On the Origins of Covid-19
260 pages, $17 paper, 978-1-58367-902-9
By Rob Wallace

Author Rob Wallace made a decision: His new book Dead Epidemiologists would take a personal approach. How could it not? Not only did he struggle with coronavirus as he wrote it, but he actually became sick as a result of his search for wage-income. This choice by the “dissident scholar,” writes reviewer Seth Sandronksy, “grabs readers.”

While he introduces his work through this intimate lens, Wallace’s perspective is entirely expansive. He goes global as he “tracks the implications of capitalist agricultural production, distribution and consumption that is harming the web of life.”
