Epidemics, Empire, and Environments
summary
In the early nineteenth century, cholera spasmodica was thought to be caused by environmental factors. Michael Zeheter, scientific assistant in the Department of Modern History at the University of Trier, presents the first history of epidemic cholera from an environmental perspective and the first comparative history of two colonies: a white settlement with privileges bestowed by England and the other a colony of exploitation.
