Pressestimmen

"Consumed in the City provides revealing insight into the world of social epidemiology related to tuberculosis control in major metropolitan areas of the United States at the close of the 20th century. Challenging our stereotypes about 'difficult' and 'non-compliant' patients, this engrossing book reveals much about the real character and milieu of life and treatment for patients caught up in poverty, homelessness, addictions to alcohol or drugs, and discrimination." JAMA "Draus makes a strong case for bringing ethnography into the practice of medicine to transform patients' histories from narratives shaped by existing medical categories to representations of life as lived by patients. This is an important book that will be valuable for health care professionals. Recommended." Choice "Consumed in the City offers a riveting and haunting view of the social havoc wreaked by TB in contemporary America. Drawing from his experience as a public health outreach worker, Paul Draus demonstrates that this preventable and treatable condition will remain a major killer if the ingrained inequalities of inner-city segregation, addiction, and poverty remain unaddressed." --Stefan Timmermans, Associate Professor, Brandeis University, and author of Sudden Death and the Myth of CPR and The Gold Standard: The Challenge of Evidence-Based Medicine and Standardization in Health Care
