520    The politics of public health in modern democracies 
       concerns the balance between rights and responsibilities. 
       This equilibrium of citizenship is under perpetual 
       negotiation, but it was particularly intense in mid-
       nineteenth-century Britain when public health became 
       deeply embedded as a state practice. Using extensive 
       archival research, <i>Intrusive Interventions</i> examines
       the contested realm ofVictorian liberal subjectivity 
       through an interconnected group of policies: infectious 
       disease reporting, domestic quarantine, mandatory removal 
       to isolation hospital, contact tracing, and the 
       disinfection of homes and belongings. These techniques of 
       infectious disease surveillance eventually became one of 
       the most powerful and controversial set of tools in modern
       public health.<BR><BR> One of the crucial questions for 
       liberal democracies has been how the state relates to the 
       private family in shaping duties, responsibilities, rights,
       and needs. <i>Intrusive Interventions</i> argues that 
       thegaze of public health was retrained onto everyday 
       behaviors and demonstrates that infectious disease 
       surveillance attempted to govern through the agency of 
       family and through the concept of domesticity. This fresh 
       interpretation of public health practice during the 
       Victorian and Edwardian periods complements studies that 
       have examined domestic visiting, the infant welfare 
       movement, child protection, and school welfare.<BR><BR>
