Editorial Reviews


"Networks in Tropical Medicine is a beautifully written—scarcely a sentence is wasted—and the book is a valuable addition to the literature that draws together and builds on the existing historiography."—James F. Stark, Canadian Bulletin of Medical History

"No scholar, until now, however, has considered so carefully and so thoroughly the co-operative dimensions of late nineteenth and early twentienth-century European tropical medicine . . . Neill has crafted a readable and interesting study founded on sound archival research with many novel insights."—Michael Osborne, Social History

"Groundbreaking in that it challenges us to rethink the relationship between the emerging discipline of tropical medicine and the policies and practices of colonial health authorities."—Randall Packard, Bulletin of the History of Medicine

"This work has made an important contribution to the history of medicine and its role in colonialism by tracing how medical networks functioned during a period of increasing hostility. The attention to detail coupled with an excellent overview of the development of tropical medicine as a scientific and medical specialty makes this work useful to specialists in tropical and colonial medicine, those new to its study, and students. For demonstrating both the strength and fragility of these networks and explaining the laboratory to field connection, while elucidating how a medical specialty was formulated, Neill deserves much praise."—John Rankin, Canadian Journal of History

Networks in Tropical Medicine is one of the most substantial contributions to a new strand of research. . . [I]t not only offers an ambitious transnational analysis of European tropical medicine before 1914, but also provokes new questions that transcend the book's conscious geographical, chronological and thematic confines. Hence, one can only hope that this groundbreaking and thought-provoking book, situated at the intersection of studies in transnationalism, colonialism and the history of tropical medicine, finds a broad audience in all these fields and sparks further research along similar lines."—Samuel Coghe, H-Net
