The news. We commonly accept it as fact, but there are many times when journalists are compelled to cross and recross the fine line between true fiction and false truth to get the "real" story. Koch argues that "the myth of the news is its supposed objectivity" and that the very forms which presumably guarantee veracity ultimately lead to incomplete and misleading "false truths." Through an innovative and original methodology and analysis of stories from a variety of North American newspapers, this book shows that the narrative form used by journalists creates a consistent and structural bias in contemporary news. Having shown that contemporary journalistic forms--from the pyramid form to the sacrosanct five W's--effect the context in which "facts" are presented, Koch uses computer database technologies to discover ways in which these forms can be changed and improved.

When we should engage with those we disagree with? Jeremy Fantl argues that sometimes we can know that arguments for controversial ideas go wrong even without engaging critically with them or figuring out where they err. Sometimes we shouldn't engage critically with an argument and, if we do engage, we shouldn't engage open-mindedly.

In the seventeenth century, a map of the plague suggested a radical idea—that the disease was carried and spread by humans. In the nineteenth century, maps of cholera cases were used to prove its waterborne nature. More recently, maps charting the swine flu pandemic caused worldwide panic and sent shockwaves through the medical community. In Disease Maps, Tom Koch contends that to understand epidemics and their history we need to think about maps of varying scale, from the individual body to shared symptoms evidenced across cities, nations, and the world. Disease Maps begins with a brief review of epidemic mapping today and a detailed example of its power. Koch then traces the early history of medical cartography, including pandemics such as European plague and yellow fever, and the advancements in anatomy, printing, and world atlases that paved the way for their mapping. Moving on to the scourge of the nineteenth century—cholera—Koch considers the many choleras argued into existence by the maps of the day, including a new perspective on John Snow’s science and legacy. Finally, Koch addresses contemporary outbreaks such as AIDS, cancer, and H1N1, and reaches into the future, toward the coming epidemics. Ultimately, Disease Maps redefines conventional medical history with new surgical precision, revealing that only in maps do patterns emerge that allow disease theories to be proposed, hypotheses tested, and treatments advanced.
