Dr. Timothy C. Winegard will discuss his book, The Mosquito: a Human History of Our Deadliest Predator. The New York Times bestselling work is the extraordinary, untold story of the mosquito’s reign through human history and the insect’s indelible impact on our modern world order. Were it not for the mosquito, America, Great Britain, and numerous other nations would not exist in their present form and the victors of countless wars would have otherwise been defeated. No other animal has transformed human civilization and evolution so profoundly and no other book has told this epic story from a global perspective. NPR called the book, “hugely impressive, a major work.”
Winegard holds a PhD from the University of Oxford and is a professor of history and political science at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado. Winegard served as an officer with the Canadian and British Forces, has lectured on CSPAN, and has appeared on televised roundtables. He is internationally published, including his four previous books, in the fields of both military history and indigenous studies.
