"Amador's work will establish how public health circuits were so critical to not only racial formation, but also the development of hemispheric cultural relations at large. The book's central conceptual anchor of 'intellectual currents and public health crossings' is sure to inspire a new generation of scholars seeking to develop frameworks for the transnational and cultural history of health in Latin America."
—Alexandra Puerto, author of Measuring the Maya: Race, Science and the Idea of the Indian in Inter-War Yucatan
"A wonderful example of what historically grounded transnational analysis can do for our understanding of the history of race and public health in the Americas. This makes a field-defining contribution to the social and cultural history of medicine as well as multiple national historiographies in race and ethnic studies."
—John Mckiernan-González, author of Fevered Measures: Public Health and Race at the Texas-Mexico Border, 1848–1942
