The Spanish Flu : Narrative and Cultural Identity in Spain, 1918 Hardback
by R. Davis
The 1918 Spanish flu epidemic is now widely recognized as the most devastating disease outbreak in recorded history.
This cultural history reconstructs Spaniards' experience of the flu and traces the emergence of various competing narratives that arose in response to bacteriology's failure to explain and contain the disease's spread.
