Contagious Communities

Medicine, Migration, and the NHS in Post War Britain

Roberta Bivins

  • A fascinating new study on the connections between migration and the British National Health Service (NHS)
  • Engages with a broad base of evidence from government files, medical reports, the popular press, and oral history
  • Captures a full range of medical and societal approaches to health and illness, from infectious to chronic to genetic disease
  • Allows readers to assess the relative - and shifting - importance of key actors, ideas, policies and institutions over time
  • Avoids the polemics of accusation and blame that are all too common in this area of research
