Description


This book analyzes the unstable, shifting perceptions of parasites in biological and social settings after 1900. It argues that "parasite" is a dangerous label for nonhuman animals and minorities, yet many modernist writers reimagine the parasite as the embodiment of dependency in a posthumanist world.
