Consumed in the City provides revealing insight into the world of social epidemiology related to tuberculosis (TB) control in major metropolitan areas of the United States at the close of the 20th century. Challenging our stereotypes about “difficult” and “noncompliant” patients, this engrossing book reveals much about the real character and milieu of life and treatment for patients caught up in poverty, homelessness, addictions to alcohol or drugs, and discrimination. Author Paul Draus also raises fundamental questions about social justice and persons with TB, nationally and internationally.
