CATCHING BREATH

The Making and Unmaking of Tuberculosis

Book - 2017/09
Rate this:
Former tuberculosis researcher Kathryn Lougheed traces the history of TB through the ages, from its time as an infection of hunter-gatherers to the first human villages, and reveals how new studies can help us understand how industrialization and urbanization helped TB become the monstrous disease it is today. She also looks at the latest research in fighting TB, and shares interviews of doctors on the frontline treating it and the personal experiences of people whose lives are threatened or decimated by the disease once called "the robber of youth."
