Summary
"This book examines the social history of rabies in the context of New York City and its rapid urbanization from the mid-nineteenth century into the early twentieth century. With rabies as its example, the book sheds new light on the history of human-animal relationships, medical understanding of infectious disease, and living with domesticated animals in cities"--
