This compelling volume brings to life the story of the successes and setbacks of public health. It documents the expansion of public health from a search for the cause of cholera to a global effort to secure a healthful environment. Henig explores the multiple perspectives from which public health must be viewed--well illustrated by the medical, behavioral, and social aspects of AIDS. Also discussed are the contributions of the Harvard School of Public Health.
"The dynamic developments in science and public health practice which shaped public policies make for an exciting story--as do the stories of the pioneers. This is a creative integration of complicated history. But it also points us to the future by highlighting the unresolved problems." --Julius B. Richmond, M.D., U.S. Surgeon General, 1977-81
