Hello world!

Hello. This blog supports my book |” Defying Providence” which is a history of the 18th century practice of inoculation. They gave people, often children, virulent smallpox.Why, how they determined that it was safe, and how the practice altered the world are the main themes of the book.
I intend to post supplementary material that did not make it into the book on this site. Please feel free to post comments, criticisms, questions, or your own thoughts on the book. I will try to answer your queries as soon as possible.
Best wishes,
