About this item

This resource for high school and up is part of a series that compiles and analyzes primary source documents ( letters, research papers, laws, essays, etc.) relevant to modern topics. This volume tackles vaccination. It begins by explaining generally how vaccination works through primary source material written in the late 1800s to early 1900s. The text then goes on to discuss vaccination in the industrial age, marked by population as well as disease growth. Germ theory is covered as well as the importance of vaccination during the two World Wars. Specific diseases are discussed such as smallpox, cholera, and polio. The book concludes with material covering the recent autism/vaccine debate as well as discussion of global vaccination programs. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
