Medicine and Empire: 1600-1960

Medicine and Empire: 1600-1960
Review: ‘This is an extremely valuable work … it fulfils but also exceeds the requirements of a textbook, for it offers an interpretative synthesis which is of value in its own right.’ – Mark Harrison, Professor of the History of Medicine and Director of the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine, Oxford University, UK ‘The book provides a narrative history in relation to empire and situates that narrative within a wider understanding of the economic, political and military functions of empire; it introduces readers to the rich and varied historiography surrounding this topic; and provides a long background to the problems of contemporary medicine and international health.’ – David Arnold, Emeritus Professor of History, University of Warwick, UK
