AUTHOR

Tomes, Nancy

SUMMARY

"The strength of Tomes's book, lies in the subtle and convincing way in which it traces the transformations in everyday beliefs, experiences, and habits produced by medicine's migration from the laboratory to the lavatory. Skillfully researched and skillfully written, it charts the 'revolution in personal hygiene' that helped to create a safer environment even as it produced new prejudices about purity and danger. In their way prejudices can be just as dangerous as germs."Tomes, Nancy is the author of 'Gospel of Germs Men, Women, and the Microbe in American Life', published 1999 under ISBN 9780674357082 and ISBN 0674357086.
