Book Description :

Inoculating Cities: Case Studies of Urban Pandemic Preparedness begins with a brief historical description of infectious disease outbreaks in cities as well as an overview of infectious disease outbreaks since 2000 that hold profound implications for cities and urban environments – such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2003, H1N1 influenza in 2009, Ebola virus in 2014, Zika virus in 2015, and more recently, COVID-19 in 2020. Each of these outbreaks affected different geographies of the world and underscored the importance of urban pandemic preparedness or urban health security as a means of mitigating the threats posed by infectious diseases. This book describes several of the characteristics of cities that make them uniquely vulnerable to infectious disease threats which include, but are not limited to, their population density, population diversity, internal and external population movements, and inequalities in cities. Finally, the book discusses frameworks and capacities that are essential for preparing cities to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease outbreaks. With contributions from experts and researchers with first-hand experiences with infectious disease outbreaks, their impact on the management of disease, and pandemic preparedness in progressively urban societies, Inoculating Cities addresses the unique threats infectious diseases pose to urban environments and surveys innovative models that cities are using to combat these threats. Offers a global scope and perspective - inclusive of multiple cities, geographies, and infectious disease outbreaks Provides in-depth case studies of successful models of urban pandemic preparedness which consist of a brief overview of a city, a brief description of an outbreak or disease burden, and an examination of the unique or innovative capacity that a city used to successfully address the health threat Written by an interdisciplinary group of experts and researchers from around the world with first-hand experiences preparing for, detecting, and responding to infectious disease outbreaks

Book Description :

This master's thesis is a short historical fiction piece that describes the 1797 smallpox epidemic in Mexico City during which inoculation was widely utilized for the first time in the Spanish colonies in order to decrease the fatalities attributed to this disease. A major portion of the background information and sources for this story came from the State files in the Archive of the Indies located in Seville, Spain. These files held numerous letters sent to the King of Spain in 1798 from the viceroy of New Spain, Marqués de Branciforte, and the civil judge, Cosme de Mier y Trespalacios. These letters contained extensive material on two vital aspects of the 1797 epidemics: the precautions against the spread of smallpox implemented by the government in Mexico City and the statistics of the number of people inoculated, the number of people infected, and the number of people killed. Beyond the archival research, more information about Mexico City at the end of the 18th Century was accumulated by perusing relevant journal articles such as Mark A Burkholder's "Audiencia" in the Encyclopedia of Latin American History and Culture and Paul Ramírez's "`Like Herod's Massacre': Quarantines, Bourbon Reform, and Popular Protest in Oaxaca's Smallpox Epidemic, 1796-1797" in The Academy of American Franciscan History. Also, Donald B. Cooper's book, Epidemic Disease in Mexico City 1761-1813: An Administrative, Social, and Medical Study, was exceptionally helpful as it provided the context necessary to create fictional characters appropriate to Mexico City for a time period over two centuries ago. The epidemic of 1797 in New Spain was unique in that the controversial inoculation procedure was more widely utilized in the population. The debate surrounding the risks and potential of inoculation marks a pivotal stage in the history of medicine, thus this topic was investigated in the works of Vicente Ferrer, Francisco Gil, Jaime Menós y de Llena, Timoteo O'Scanlan, and Francisco Salvá y Campillo. In addition to these pieces on smallpox and inoculation, Simon André David Tissot's book, Warning to the Town, was reviewed for all of the basic treatments and symptoms of smallpox, as this book was widely available in the Spanish colonies at the end of the 18th Century. Although mankind utilized the technique of inoculation as early as 1000 A.D., this procedure was not introduced to the Western world until early in the 18th century. This "new" preventative option against the contagious smallpox disease was utilized on a limited basis in the 1720's in both Britain and, across the Atlantic Ocean, in the city of Boston. However, even with its numerous successes, the few fatalities associated with inoculation simulated a huge debate about the safety and necessity of the widespread usage of this potentially dangerous procedure. As a result, in the ensuing decades individual doctors practiced inoculation but its widespread implementation was not sponsored politically until the 1797 epidemic in Mexico City. Due to the significant loss of lives during the preceding smallpox strike of 1779 on Mexico City, drastic measures had to be taken resulting in the government's approval of widespread inoculation. This was a significant moment in history as it paved the way for the acceptance of the smallpox vaccination that Edward Jenner created in 1796 which led to the eventual eradication of this horrible disease. Although you now understand the historical significance of the 1797 smallpox epidemic, you cannot truly understand the pain smallpox caused or the uncertainty surrounding inoculation from this detached perspective. My thesis takes on a personal and in-depth description of the horrific events of this historical epidemic from the viewpoints of three very different characters: a civil judge, a doctor, and a child. Using these varied perspectives, I portray for you the anxiety, fear, and agony so often associated with smallpox epidemics in the 18th century, however, completely unfamiliar to the population today. These historically accurate events of 1797 show how people reacted to a deadly epidemic without any effective treatment options and with a preventative measure that many warned could spread the disease even more.

Book Description :

By the time William Penn was planning the colony that would come to be called Pennsylvania, with Philadelphia at its heart, Europeans on both sides of the ocean had long experience with the hazards of city life, disease the most terrifying among them. Drawing from those experiences, colonists hoped to create new urban forms that combined the commercial advantages of a seaport with the health benefits of the country. The Contagious City details how early Americans struggled to preserve their collective health against both the strange new perils of the colonial environment and the familiar dangers of the traditional city, through a period of profound transformation in both politics and medicine. Philadelphia was the paramount example of this reforming tendency. Tracing the city’s history from its founding on the banks of the Delaware River in 1682 to the yellow fever outbreak of 1793, Simon Finger emphasizes the importance of public health and population control in decisions made by the city’s planners and leaders. He also shows that key figures in the city’s history, including Benjamin Franklin and Benjamin Rush, brought their keen interest in science and medicine into the political sphere. Throughout his account, Finger makes clear that medicine and politics were inextricably linked, and that both undergirded the debates over such crucial concerns as the city’s location, its urban plan, its immigration policy, and its creation of institutions of public safety. In framing the history of Philadelphia through the imperatives of public health, The Contagious City offers a bold new vision of the urban history of colonial America.

Book Description :

A groundbreaking history of early America that shows how Boston built and sustained an independent city-state in New England before being folded into the United States In the vaunted annals of America’s founding, Boston has long been held up as an exemplary “city upon a hill” and the “cradle of liberty” for an independent United States. Wresting this iconic urban center from these misleading, tired clichés, The City-State of Boston highlights Boston’s overlooked past as an autonomous city-state, and in doing so, offers a pathbreaking and brilliant new history of early America. Following Boston’s development over three centuries, Mark Peterson discusses how this self-governing Atlantic trading center began as a refuge from Britain’s Stuart monarchs and how—through its bargain with slavery and ratification of the Constitution—it would tragically lose integrity and autonomy as it became incorporated into the greater United States. Drawing from vast archives, and featuring unfamiliar figures alongside well-known ones, such as John Winthrop, Cotton Mather, and John Adams, Peterson explores Boston’s origins in sixteenth-century utopian ideals, its founding and expansion into the hinterland of New England, and the growth of its distinctive political economy, with ties to the West Indies and southern Europe. By the 1700s, Boston was at full strength, with wide Atlantic trading circuits and cultural ties, both within and beyond Britain’s empire. After the cataclysmic Revolutionary War, “Bostoners” aimed to negotiate a relationship with the American confederation, but through the next century, the new United States unraveled Boston’s regional reign. The fateful decision to ratify the Constitution undercut its power, as Southern planters and slave owners dominated national politics and corroded the city-state’s vision of a common good for all. Peeling away the layers of myth surrounding a revered city, The City-State of Boston offers a startlingly fresh understanding of America’s history.
