Got a great one for you:
"Power Unseen - How Microbes Rule the World" by Dixon.  Published by
Freeman/ Spektrum (Oxford) 1994

It's full of short pieces, tow or three pages each, which trace the effect
of a certain microbe on human culture - from cheese making to antrax.   A
very entertaining read.
