Typhus fever is known as a historical scourge in times of war, famine and population upheaval, but this is only one of four types; the other three, each carried by a different insect, are still important causes of human disease in many parts of the world. The history of each type is described, and the intriguing recent discovery that the responsible bacteria are close cousins of the mitochondria which provide energy inside every living cell on the planet is discussed. About the Author George Cowan is a retired British Army physician with interests in tropical medicine who has worked on four continents and often cared for local people. His inquiry into typhus fever was stimulated by military cases of 'scrub typhus' in Malaysia and Singapore in 1970 and has since embraced the history of all four varieties of typhus. In 2008 he received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, the University of St Andrews, after graduating with an honours degree in Humanities from the Open University in 2007.

The Story of Electricity

he Story of Electricity was written to tell people how our present knowledge of it grew up. Prospective readers may fall into three categories. First those with an Arts background and no knowledge of Science. Secondly those with a background of Science outside Physics. And thirdly those with a background of Physics, but have no knowledge of the history of electricity. To accommodate all three of these categories the book has been written with no mathematics. The order of presentation is chronological. Thus in B.C. times the effects of magnetism were of commercial importance for sea voyaging. But today the ubiquity of radio has emphasised the greater importance of electricity. Since historically advances have been made largely by individuals, their family and religious backgrounds have been recorded as important factors in their contributions. Following World War II this situation has been reversed, because of the funding requirements of global markets. But future progress may again revert to individuals.
