Steven Johnson: A guided tour of the Ghost Map

Great ten-minute video about London's cholera outbreak in 1854 and the impact it had on science, cities and modern society

Ward Kaiser's forthcoming book i
ncludes John Snow's cholera map of deaths around the now infamous Broad Street pump. Read about both the myth, as well as the more nuanced, more layered, and less reverential, story about John Snow.
