In this first English-language study of popular and scientific responses to tuberculosis in nineteenth-century France, David Barnes provides a much-needed historical perspective on a disease that is making an alarming comeback in the United States and Europe. Barnes argues that French perceptions of the disease—ranging from the early romantic image of a consumptive woman to the later view of a scourge spread by the poor—owed more to the power structures of nineteenth-century society than to medical science. By 1900, the war against tuberculosis had become a war against the dirty habits of the working class. Lucid and original, Barnes's study broadens our understanding of how and why societies assign moral meanings to deadly diseases.
A History of Public Health
Author: George Rosen, Pascal James Imperato, Elizabeth Fee
Publisher: JHU Press
Since publication in 1958, George Rosen’s classic book has been regarded as the essential international history of public health. Describing the development of public health in classical Greece, imperial Rome, England, Europe, the United States, and elsewhere, Rosen illuminates the lives and contributions of the field’s great figures. He considers such community health problems as infectious disease, water supply and sewage disposal, maternal and child health, nutrition, and occupational disease and injury. And he assesses the public health landscape of health education, public health administration, epidemiological theory, communicable disease control, medical care, statistics, public policy, and medical geography. Rosen, writing in the 1950s, may have had good reason to believe that infectious diseases would soon be conquered. But as Dr. Pascal James Imperato writes in the new foreword to this edition, infectious disease remains a grave threat. Globalization, antibiotic resistance, and the emergence of new pathogens and the reemergence of old ones, have returned public health efforts to the basics: preventing and controlling chronic and communicable diseases and shoring up public health infrastructures that provide potable water, sewage disposal, sanitary environments, and safe food and drug supplies to populations around the globe. A revised introduction by Elizabeth Fee frames the book within the context of the historiography of public health past, present, and future, and an updated bibliography by Edward T. Morman includes significant books on public health history published between 1958 and 2014. For seasoned professionals as well as students, A History of Public Health is visionary and essential reading.

Cancer & Nutrition
Author: Joel B. Mason, Gérard Nitenberg
Publisher: S. Karger AG (Switzerland)
Estimates suggest that approximately 35% of cancers are a consequence of suboptimal diet. In this publication, epidemilogists, basic scientists and clinicians review both the epidemiology and mechanistic aspects of nutrition in the prevention of lung, breast, colorectal and prostate cancer. Moreover, an update on the status of the European EPIC study is given. Protein-calorie malnutrition of a clinically significant degree is common among cancer patients and contributes significantly to both morbidity and mortality: Besides causing death solely from progressive cachexia, malnutrition leads to diminished cardiac performance, an increased susceptibility to infection and a diminished response to chemotherapy. Reversing, or even attenuating, this cachexia is an extremely problematic issue. Topics covered here include mechanisms by which malnutrition evolves in cancer patients, animal models of cancer wasting, controversial nutritional interventions in cancer patients and nutritional support in pediatric patients and bone marrow transplantation.
