review Pox AUTHOR Michael Willrich Michael Willrich ☆ 7 Free read Free read Pox AUTHOR Michael Willrich 107 Rging immunization certificates Pox introduces us to memorable characters on both sides of the debate from Henning Jacobson a Swedish Lutheran minister whose battle against vaccination went all the way to the Supreme Court to C P Wertenbaker a federal surgeon who saw himself as a medical missionary combating a deadly and preventable diseaseAs Willrich suggests many of the uestions first raised by the Progressive era antivaccination movement are still with us How far should the government go to protect us from peril What happens when the interests of public health collide with religious beliefs and personal conscience In Pox Willrich delivers a riveting tale about the clash of modern medicine civil liberties and government power at the turn of the last century that resonates powerfully toda. This is a history book and makes no pretense of being anything else It is not trying to tell a story It is trying to recount and link facts into a larger picture It succeeds but at the price of being a bit on the dry side This will lose some readers but if you stick it out you will end up with a much clearer picture of an era rapidly slipping into our culture s memory hole The smallpox vaccination scare of the Bush years itself is already fading from memory so smallpox itself seems like something made up to scare children One of the book s main points is that even in 1900 the major epidemics were already in the past People who have never seen the suffering these diseases can cause discount them easily but the government cannot afford to forget As a result the state went to extreme lengths to ensure compliance with vaccination laws We cannot afford to forget that eitherI found the latter section with its focus on antivaxxers of the 1900s to be illuminating in looking at the antivaxxers of today In particular the events in Camden NJ shine a light on the thimerosol freakout of the antivax movement of today It s a good read for those who appreciate the weaving together of webs of facts as much as the telling of a story I can t recommend it to those who need the story element for enjoyment of a history
