Product description

They’ve won and lost wars, solved murders and built empires. The smartest things on six legs. It’s history: but not as you know it. We always think history is made by people. But what if it’s actually made by bugs? There are ten quintillion insects in the world. They’ve been around as long as we have. And from spreading diseases to winning wars, they’ve left their fly-specked mark at every turn. Feeling brave? Now you can find out: how bugs kill more soldiers than weapons do. How they help police solve murder mysteries. How they’ve tipped the balance of revolutions. Share these cool and yucky facts with your history class. We bet they’ll be totally bugged out.
