History of a Continent's Scourge
Translated by Arthur Goldhammer
In Chagas Disease: History of a Continent’s Scourge, François Delaporte describes how the interaction of public health policy with medical knowledge and epistemological transformations in the period 1900-1935 can account for the discovery of a continental endemic. It also deconstructs the myths that surround a number of major medical discoveries in both Brazil and Argentina.
