Staff Reviews


London is hit by a violent outbreak of cholera and the prevailing minds of 1854 blame it on "something in the air" or the miasma theory.  Dr. John Snow has other ideas and sets out to prove through mapping, statistics, and personal interviews that cholera is a waterbourne disease.  This is a fascinating look at Victorian culture and medicine.
