Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the middle decades of the twentieth century, Asia was at the heart of international efforts to create a new utopia: a world free from disease. Positioned at the unexplored boundary between international history and the history of colonial/postcolonial medicine, the book is a political, intellectual, and social history of public health in Asia, from the 1930s to the early 1960s. The discussion takes India as its core focus, but highlights the international networks connecting developments in India with the Asian region and the wider world, from Rangoon to New York. Drawing on a diverse range of sources, the book contributes to debates on nationalism, internationalism and the post-colonial State.

Synopsis:

A political, intellectual, and social history of public health in Asia, from the 1930s to the early 1960s.
