Pox: An American History

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

The age-old sickness 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 20th century.

What occurs whilst the pursuits of public well-being collide with non secular ideals and private moral sense? In Pox, Willrich offers a riveting story concerning the conflict of recent drugs, civil liberties, and executive energy on the flip of the final century that resonates powerfully today.
