Governing Disease

Cultivating the Will to Health in Jewish Immigrants to the United Kingdom

(p.55) Chapter Two Governing Disease
Testing Fate

Shelley Z. Reuter

University of Minnesota Press

The second chapter focuses on Jewish immigration to the UK during roughly the same period (1880-1914) and the interventions that were made into the immigrants’ behaviours so as to inculcate an ethos of self-care. This early instance of responsibilization set the stage for Jewish parents to seek out genetic counseling (such as it was) for Tay-Sachs in these early days.
