Using the oral histories of patients and doctors, as well as archival research, Kissing can be Dangerous reveals the way in which social and cultural perceptions of tuberculosis-as well as the biological effects-shaped the experience of the tuberculosis sufferer, and the response of the Public Health Department to the disease. Also included, are photographs and promotional material used by the Government, of the time, in public health campaigns.
