Pox: An American History - Michael Willrich This book ranges over three topics - the history of Small Pox epidemics and vaccination (and the varying reactions of class and color); why the anti-vaccination crowd gained such a boost (a less virulent strain and problems with vaccine quality control); and the legal ramifications of vaccination at that time (leading to a supreme court decision still cited today). An enlightening book!
