Klappentext '"Influenza 1918" argues that historians have ignored the long-term consequences of short-term but serious health crises such as the influenza epidemic of 1918. By focusing on Winnipeg, Esyllt W. Jones traces the familiar repercussions of losing a loved one and how it impinged on the social welfare responsibilities of the city for many years. This is a well written, engaging, and timely study that should appeal to anyone interested in the history of the working class, women, medicine, and family.'-Wendy Mitchinson, Department of History, University of Waterloo and Canada Research Chair in Gender and Medical History Zusammenfassung Influenza 1918 concludes that social conflict is not an inevitable outcome of epidemics! but rather of inequality and public failure to fully engage all members of the community in the fight against disease.
