Quarantine!: East European Jewish Immigrants and the New York City Epidemics of 1892

Quarantine!: East European Jewish Immigrants and the New York City Epidemics of 1892 Lowest new price: $21.00
Lowest used price: $5.00
List price: $28.00
Author: Howard Markel
Brand: Brand: The Johns Hopkins University Press

In Quarantine! Howard Markel traces the course of the typhus and cholera epidemics that swept through New York City in 1892. The story is told from the point of view of those involved―the public health doctors who diagnosed and treated the victims, the newspaper reporters who covered the stories, the government officials who established and enforced policy, and, most importantly, the immigrants themselves. Drawing on rarely cited stories from the Yiddish American press, immigrant diaries and letters, and official accounts, Markel follows the immigrants on their journey from a squalid and precarious existence in Russia's Pale of Settlement, to their passage in steerage, to New York's Lower East Side, to the city's quarantine islands. At a time of renewed anti-immigrant sentiment and newly emerging infectious diseases, Quarantine! provides a historical context for considering some of the significant problems that face American society today.

Author: John M. Howard

Never before has a comprehensive history of the pancreas like History of the Pancreas been published. It not only is a historical review of the science of medicine, it is liberally interspersed with anecdotal vignettes of the researchers who have worked on this organ. Much of it, such as the discovery of the duct of Wirsüng, of the islets of Langerhans, of insulin, gastrin and their tumors, reads like the adverture, which it is.

This book, divided into 14 chapters, is written in a narrative style and is easily readable, as glimpses of the investigators, those who failed as well as those who succeeded, adds both perspective and human interest. Each chapter is completely referenced, totaling over 1500 references.

As a reference book for students, teachers, investigators, writers, its detailed hjistorical documentation is unique. From the pre-Christian era of Asia Minor, to Greece, Rome, Europe and America, to the explosive progress in Japan, the history is there. History of the Pancreas: Mysteries of a Hidden Organ fills a gap.
