Book Description:

I've taken this book out of the library countless times.

It's wonderfully written, a great investigation, and superb model for academics with a broad reaching media and temporal scope.
Cinematic Prophylaxis offers a very sophisticated and original interpretation of a fascinating topic: the emergence of the logic of contagion in world health ‘education’ practices and in U. S. mainstream cinema. Kirsten Ostherr links the discourse of contagion and public health with the development of cinema and the rise of visuality, problems of modernity, and the logic of conspiracy, ultimately tying all of these to the problem of globalization. Her argument is utterly original; I haven’t seen anything else like it.”—Melani McAlister, author of Epic Encounters: Culture, Media, and U. S. Interests in the Middle East since 1945
