""After reading this book, no one should fail to see tuberculosis in South Africa in the light of social policies and interests which have prevented its control. In turn, it shows tuberculosis to be one measure of the cost in suffering of the emergence of a modern capitalist society in South Africa.""â¿¿Rodney Ehrlich, Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York ""At almost every point, the author has something fresh to say about previous analyses of the origins, nature and spread of the disease. His subtle exposition of the ideological interpretations of the medical professionâ¿¿from their adherence to a 'virgin soil' theory to more recent notions of relating to the social and biological aetiology of the diseaseâ¿¿is particularly original and thought-provoking. . . . Well researched, effectively organised, and wholly readable.""â¿¿Shula Marks, Institute of Commonwealth Studies, University of London
