Medicine and Empire

1600-1960

The history of modern medicine is inseparable from the history of imperialism. Medicine and Empire provides an introduction to this shared history – spanning three centuries and covering British, French and Spanish imperial histories in Africa, Asia and America.



Exploring the major developments in European medicine from the seventeenth century to the mid-twentieth century, Pratik Chakrabarti shows that the major developments in European medicine had a colonial counterpart and were closely intertwined with European activities overseas:



• the increasing influence of natural history on medicine

• the growth of European drug markets

• the rise of surgeons in status

• ideas of race and racism

• advancements in sanitation and public health

• the expansion of the modern quarantine system

• the emergence of Germ theory and global vaccination campaigns.



Drawing on recent scholarship and primary texts, this book narrates a mutually constitutive history in which medicine was both a 'tool' and a product of imperialism, and provides an original, accessible insight into the deep historical roots of the problems that plague global health today.

Zitat
'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
