Black Death at the Golden Gate : the race to save America from the bubonic plague

Image of item
Book

First edition.

A meticulously researched history that unfolds like a thriller. A complex tale of medicine, politics, race, and public health.  Randall does good work in revealing the clamorous clash of public and private interests surrounding the outbreak…A tale that resonates with the outbreak of measles, mumps, and other supposedly contained epidemics today. The unlikely heroes―bacteriologists and public health officers with long, flowing beards―battle villains most vile: racism, rotten politics, disregard for science, and Yersinia pestis. Black Death at the Golden Gate is both a page-turner and a cautionary tale: those villains still lurk.
