Description
The true story of Mary Mallon, the legend of Typhoid Mary, the early days of epidemiology and microbiology, the conflict between public health and individual freedom, and the ethical implications for a present beset with AIDS and Ebola. Walzer (history of medicine and women's studies, U. of Wisconsin- Madison) also considers whether race, gender, and class played a part in forcibly isolating the Irish immigrant cook for the rest of her life after the outbreak of disease among wealthy New Yorkers was traced to her in 1907.
