Über diesen Titel


Long before the terms global health, biosecurity, and public health preparedness came into existence, European and colonial governments struggled to contain and prevent the spread of epidemic diseases from India to the western world. The significance of India to Europe ? commercially, epidemiologically, strategically ? meant that India occupied a central position in debates on the control of epidemic diseases, becoming a focus of international concern and regulation. European anxieties grew during the later colonial period as increased global trade and faster transportation heightened the risk that these diseases would spread from India to Europe. Risk and fear, however, were not limited to European states. The colonial government in India recognized that infectious diseases posed certain risks to its ability to govern and to the colonial economy. This book uses case studies of cholera, plague, malaria, and yellow fever to analyze how factors such as health diplomacy, epidemiology, trade, imperial governance, medical technologies, and cultural norms, operated within global and colonial conceptions of risk to shape infectious disease policies in colonial India.


This book analyzes how international and colonial perceptions of the economic, political, and epidemiological risks associated with epidemics influenced infectious disease policies in British India

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
