Rabies in Britain : Dogs, Disease and Culture, 1830-2000 Paperback / softback

Part of the Science, Technology and Medicine in Modern History series


Rabies was a constant threat in Victorian Britain and gripped popular imagination, not least because its human form, hydrophobia, produced a vile death with the mind and body out of control.

This book explores the changing understanding of rabies amongst veterinarians, animal welfare campaigners, state officials, politicians and the public.
