When Germs Travel: Six Major Epidemics That Have Invaded America Since 1900 and the Fears They Have Unleashed
Howard Markel (au)
Tells the story of 6 epidemics that broke out during the two great waves of immigration to the U.S. -- from 1880 through 1924, and from 1965 to the present -- and shows how Fed. legislation closed the gates to newcomers for almost 41 years out of fear that these new people would alter the social, political, and economic face of the nation. Markel writes about TB today; bubonic plague and how it came to this country; trachoma in the years before WW1; typhus fever and an epidemic on the Texas-Mexico border in the aftermath of Pancho Villa’s revolution; cholera; and AIDS, the Haitian exodus, and the early years of the AIDS epidemic. Looks at the many issues related to immigration and infectious diseases in the 21st century. Photos.
