dc.description This is an edited volume. Part 1, comprising six articles, addresses dimensions of contemporary public health approaches to TB, Part 2, comprising five articles, analyses historical policies that contributed to disproportionately high levels of TB among indigenous people in both nations, and Part 3, five articles, presents experiencenear accounts of individuals, families and communities coping with TB in daily life. The individual studies speak to the power of ethnography and ethnohistory in analysing infectious disease and the societies in which it exists. en
dc.description.abstract Multiplying and Dividing brings together the work of two multi-disciplinary research groups located in Canada and New Zealand who discovered that they were working along similar lines in their research on historical and contemporary tuberculosis in their respective countries. The volume, the outcome of a joint workshop in Canada in 2006, shows the multiple realities that make up the experience of TB for nations, communities, and individuals. Tb can divide communities, but in some circumstances unites them in a quest for eradication. The social and epidemiological research undertaken into TB exposes social divisions and inequalities in these two postcolonial societies en
