A Plague on Your Houses: How New York Was Burned Down and National Public Health Crumbled
A Plague on Your Houses is a scorching indictment of the decision to close fire companies in New York City in the 1970s and a frightening study of the way misguided and malevolent social policy can spark a chain reaction of enormous and unforeseen urban collapse. Using an approach more commonly associated with epidemiology, Deborah and Rodrick Wallace paint a terrifying picture of rampant social collapse spreading in the patterns of a pandemic plague.
