Social History of the Thames in the Nineteenth Century. From the cover: “The study is divided into three sections. The first consists of a survey of the state of the Thames during the nineteenth century and a complementary account of water filtration and water analysis. This is followed by a highly original account of those water-transmitted and water-related infections — cholera, infant diarrhoea and typhoid — which regularly and horrifically decimated human life in the capital during this period. The final section is concerned with the politics of environmental control. This is a multidisciplinary study which will be of interest to social historians, historians of science and those concerned with London’s past and future.”
