Expunging Variola The control and Eradication of Smallpox in India 1947-1977
Expunging Variola The control and Eradication of Smallpox in India 1947-1977
Description
From the Jacket

Sanjoy Bhattacharya is Lecturer at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at University College London. He is the author of Propaganda and Information in Eastern India, 1939-45: A Necessary Weapon of war (2001), fractured States: Smallpox, Public Health and Vaccination Policy in British India, 1800-1947 (Orient Longman, Sangam Books, 2005), and several articles relating to the medical, social and political history of India.

Back of the Book

As a crucial component of the global smallpox eradication programme, which has been widely hailed as one of the greatest public health successes in the twentieth century, the Indian experience has some important stories to tell. Expunging Variola reveals these as it chronicles the last three decades of the anti-smallpox campaigns in India.

This wide-ranging study, based on extensive archival research in India, Britain, Switzerland and the United States of America, assesses the many complexities in the formulation and implementation of the smallpox eradication programme in the subcontinent. Rather than merely cataloguing the developments of this extremely complex exercise within the world Health Organisation headquarters in Geneva and the Indian central government in New Delhi, this book adopts a much broader perspective: it makes a conscious effort to provide a detailed view by including the accounts of WHO, governmental and nongovernmental personnel on the ground. In this manner, nuanced descriptions of important - and often controversial - situations are provided. Thus, apart from acknowledging the influence of national-, state-and district-level political, economic and social structures in continually reshaping the contours of the smallpox campaigns, this work also emphasises the crucial rule played by field workers in implementing and often reinterpreting health strategies proposed by Geneva and New Delhi.

Original not only in perspective but in material, based as it is on a wide range of sources which have never been exploited by academics before, Expunging Variola breaks new ground in the historiography of smallpox eradication in the subcontinent.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
