Summary
"Disease may not discriminate, but it can help those who do. Focusing on San Francisco between 1860 and 1940, Susan Craddock considers that the devastations caused by tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, and syphilis were derived in part from their use as political tools and disciplinary mechanisms." "The recent outbreaks of AIDS in San Francisco and tuberculosis in New York suggest that little has changed - and that, as Craddock argues, unless health policies begin to address economic inequity, poor housing, and racial and gender discrimination, disease will continue to characterize and shape urban society."--Jacket
