520 8  As the nineteenth century drew to a close and epidemics in
       western Europe were waning, the deadly cholera vibrio 
       continued to wreak havoc in Russia, outlasting the 
       Romanovs. Scholars have since argued that cholera 
       eventually fell prey to better sanitation and strict 
       quarantine under the Soviets, citing as evidence imperial 
       mismanagement, a ̀backward' tsarist medical system and 
       physicians' anachronistic environmental interpretations of
       the disease. Drawing on extensive archival research and 
       the so-called 'material turn' in historiography, however, 
       John P. Davis here demonstrates that Romanov-era 
       physicians' environmental approach to disease was not ill-
       grounded, nor a consequence of neo-liberal or populist 
       political leanings, but born of pragmatic scientific 
       considerations. The physicians confronted cholera in a 
       broad and sophisticated way, essentially laying the 
       foundations for the system of public health that the 
       Soviets successfully used to defeat cholera during the New
       Economic Policy (1922-1928). By focusing for the first 
       time on the conclusion of the cholera epoch in Russia, 
       Davis adds an indispensable layer of nuance to the 
       existing conception of Romanov Russia and its complicated 
       legacy in the Soviet period
