This book argues that European tropical medicine experts successfully built a network of professional researchers and clinicians that helped them establish their collective authority as experts in a new field of scientific inquiry. It examines the facilitation of certain kinds of medical advances and their contribution to colonial practices in Europe's African colonies. The book demonstrates that colonial health practices developed as a result both of national goals and of interventions by influential transnational actors with shared agendas.
