The Last Plague: Spanish Influenza and the Politics of Public Health in Canada: [Review]

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review

Abstract

Though the government moved to prevent the return of infected soldiers from the battlefields of Europe, its commitment to intensifying the war effort, and in particular the raising of the Canadian Siberian Expeditionary Force, increased the internal movement of Canadian troops, which contributed to the spread of influenza at home. According to this optimistic analysis, the catastrophe that affected hundreds of thousands of Canadians produced long-term positive change.
