Bring out your dead; the great plague of yellow fever in Philadelphia in 1793 by J. H Powell( Book )

37 editions published between 1949 and 2016 in English and held by 1,834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic work, originally published in 1949, has been reprinted for the 200th anniversary of the yellow fever plague in Philadelphia. Today, as outbreaks of infectious diseases continue to confront the medical community worldwide, this account of one city's struggle in the face of overwhelming odds has particular resonance. This is also a psychological portrait of a city in terror. It presents a penetrating study of human nature revealing itself, as told through original sources, of an infamous tragedy that left its mark on all it touched. -- Publisher description

The challenge to democracy by J. H Powell( )

2 editions published in 1941 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first thing any American says to the foreign visitor wrote Charles Dickens in a wretched mood, is "what do you think of our institutions?" We are still a bit like that. Not so quaint, perhaps, as when Dickens knew us, but we still wear our institutions on our sleeves, and as with most of things so familiar and so publicly displayed we seem to take them for granted. They mean as much to us as the impressive buildings that house the government offices but sometimes little more. Now the purpose of this series of bulletins is not only to emphasize the present crises in democracy, but also to stress the need, so pressing in these times, for us all to use the crisis of the moment to learn more about democracy, so that we may preserve and enrich our heritage. In this particular bulletin we are concerned with the part of governmental institutions play in building and preserving the democracy; and before we go on with it we shall have to show how and why this matter is important."--Page [649]
