Douglas Starr (au). A history of human blood as a resource & humanity’s attempts to understand & exploit it. The mythic & moral symbolism of blood, which has been with us since ancient times subtly endures. It clouded professional judgments & public perceptions in the AIDS scandals of France, Canada, & Japan. This liquid became symbolically transformed as society learned how to deconstruct & manage it. In the early 20th century, the concept of blood moved from the magical to the biological, recognized as a therapeutic liquid transfusible from one creature to another. Scientists developed techniques of mass collections, storage, & the separation of plasma, just in time for WW2. Later, the liquid that saved so many lives became the basis for a global industry.
