Crosby (U. of Texas) recounts the course of the pandemic during the panic-stricken months of 1918 and 1919, measures its impact on American society, and (of greatest interest) probes the loss of national memory of the event. Originally published in 1976, this edition contains a new preface. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
