Multiple New York Times Notable Book winner and University of Texas professor, David M. Oshinsky is a leading American political and cultural historian. Garnering the 2006 Pulitzer Prize in History, this comprehensive and gripping narrative covers all the challenges, characters, and controversies in America’s relentless struggle against polio. Funded by philanthropy and grassroots contributions, Salk’s killed-virus vaccine (1954) and Sabin’s live-virus vaccine (1961) began to eradicate this dreaded disease.
