This book explores tropical medicine as an inter-European international science and assesses the application of some of its leading scientists' ideas about how to address two major colonial health problems in Africa: public health in urban colonial centers and the sleeping sickness epidemic. It focuses on a group of colonizers: what motivated them, what brought them together as a transnational community, how the colonies benefited their profession, and how their collective ideas were put into practice in specific locations.
