Wolfe, Thomas. Look Homeward Angel. New York: Scribner, 1929. Hailed by many as the “Great American Novel”, Wolfe’s autobiographical masterpiece is one of the few works of fiction that mentions the flu. His sad and eloquent description of his brother Ben on his deathbed is a scene that was repeated hundreds of thousands of times across America during the 1918 pandemic.
Wray, Matt. Not Quite White: White Trash and the Boundaries of Whiteness. Durham: Duke University Press, 2006. A fascinating scholarly study of the phenomenon of the white trash stereotype, with extensive material on the role of the hookworm campaign in redefining the southern white working class.
Wright, Willard H. “Charles Wardell Stiles: 1867-1941.” The Journal of Parasitology 27, no. 3 (Jun., 1941): pp. 195-201. A more formal biography of Stiles, with good background on his early research on tapeworms.
Ziegler, Philip. The Black Death. Stroud, Gloucestershire; Wolfeboro, NH: Sutton, 1991; 1969. A detailed account of the 14th Century pandemic, with an emphasis on England. Well researched and authoritative, but a bit dry.
Zinsser, Hans. Rats, Lice and History. Boston: Atlantic Monthly Press by Little, Brown, and Company, 1935. The first great study of epidemic and vector-borne diseases, with an emphasis on typhus. Especially good for historical plagues.
