Rest Uneasy investigates the processes by which SIDS became both a discrete medical enigma and a source of social anxiety construed differently over time and according to varying perspectives. Brittany Cowgill chronicles and assesses Americans’ fraught but consequential efforts to explain and conquer SIDS.
