1 Review
A History of Neglect examines the environmental, political, and economic forces that contributed to the poor health and substandard medical care of southern blacks and mill workers in this century. Edward H. Beardsley seeks to discover the social basis of ill health for these two populations in relation to larger developments like urban migration, race and class prejudice, and the growth of the textile industry.
