Pox: An American History

The untold tale of ways America's Progressive-era conflict on smallpox sparked one of many nice civil liberties battles of the 20th century.

on the flip of the final century, a strong smallpox epidemic swept the USA from coast to coast. The age-old illness unfold speedily via an more and more interconnected American panorama: from southern tobacco plantations to the dense immigrant neighborhoods of northern towns to far-flung villages at the edges of the nascent American empire. In Pox, award-winning historian Michael Willrich bargains a gripping chronicle of ways the nation's continentwide struggle opposed to smallpox introduced essentially the most vital civil liberties struggles of the 20 th century.

on the sunrise of the activist innovative period and through a second of serious optimism approximately sleek medication, the govt. answered to the lethal epidemic by way of calling for common obligatory vaccination. To implement the legislations, public future health experts depended on quarantines, pesthouses, and "virus squads"-corps of medical professionals and club-wielding police. even though those measures ultimately contained the illness, in addition they sparked a wave of renowned resistance between americans who perceived them as a possibility to their healthiness and to their rights.

As Willrich indicates, some of the questions first raised by way of the Progressive-era antivaccination move are nonetheless with us: How a ways may still the govt. visit defend us from peril? What occurs while the pursuits of public future health collide with non secular ideals and private judgment of right and wrong?
