There's a lot more complexity than most people register, and that explains how angry the settlers in various places can be at the military. This also happened elsewhere where peoples with no immunity succumbed to the diseases carried by newcomers particularly conquerors. Divided into five compact and smoothly written chapters, Born to Die focuses on but does not limit itself to the study of disease as a major contributing factor to native depopulation.
