"To the great majority of the people of New Brunswick, segregation was the only way to deal with the problem of leprosy. Only by isolating lepers could society be shielded from contamination. Rather than to serve the needs of the lepers, the lazarettos of Sheldrake and Tracadie were to be dumping grounds for medical deviants." - from the rear cover.
Faint cover crease, else very good. Signed and inscribed by the author on the half-title leaf. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be cheaper than quoted. 28.00
