Public Health In British India: Anglo-Indian Preventative Medicine 1859-1914

£14.99

Product description

This book is in good condition. The front and rear covers exhibit a moderate level of wear and slightly creasing. The pages are undamaged, with no staining, tearing or creasing, and the spine and binding are both undamaged.

This highly informative work takes us on a journey into British India to discover how colonial medical intervention became significant from a political point of view, as well as the purposes of it. The gap between the rhetoric and reality of colonial medical policy is also examined, as well as the European attitudes towards India and its inhabitants.

Highly detailed and thoughtfully written, this book is an excellent purchase for anyone with more than a passing interest in medical and social history!
