ciudad impura small200The book The Ailing City: Health, Tuberculosis, and Culture in Buenos Aires, 1870–1950 by Diego Armus is now available in Spanish for free download at Eä Journal's website.

The Ailing City... reconstructs a social history of tuberculosis in the City of Buenos Aires between 1870 and 1950, analyzing the way in which the disease went through public and private life, both through its metaphors and discourses and to implemented health policies. The work falls within the history of health and disease, the history of medicine, the history of public health and the socio-cultural history of disease. It takes the disease as an object of reflection, in its intricate connection with the origins and development of the modern city and the construction of the national state.
