New Internationalist books and publications

Trigger Issues: Mosquito links fever, the Panama Canal and Roman emperors. Everyone has been bitten by a ‘mozzie’, the pesky night-time bomber, but for some its bite brings deadly disease, for other it is a work of art. Certainly you have to admire its resilience; all attempts to wipe it out have failed.

The Trigger Issues series presents single objects that have had far-reaching impact on the modern world. Each item is explored through its effects on society and often surprising cultural connections. Exposing topical items in a new light these are short, sharp and provocative booklets._

About the author: Richard Swift is co-editor of New Internationalist magazine and author of the No-Nonsense Guide to Democracy.
