Cartographies of Disease: Maps, Mapping, and Medicine, Expanded Edition
The first edition of the book spawned the discipline "historical spatial epidemiology," and here Koch makes few changes in the text and adds material sparingly to boost the chapters from 12 to 14. One goal is to portray disease incidence as a dynamic spatial thing, an interaction between microbial agents and the environment they and humans share. Another is to dispel the myth of the brilliant lonely genius John Snow single-handedly inventing medical mapping in the cholera outbreak in London during 1854, and show the long history of medical mapping.
