Silent Travelers

Germs, Genes, and the Immigrant Menace

Reviews

Fascinating... Kraut's narrative shows that it has always been easier to blame immigrants for epidemics than to attack the infrastructure of the disease.

- New York Times

Kraut chronicles the medical assimilation of immigrants through a series of public health and curative initiatives... For those interested in the public and private response to immigrant health problems, this book is a great read.
