Summary

In this unique, highly detailed examination, Gordon C Cook investigates the very beginnings of tropical medicine through the work of Dr George Low (1872-1952). Widely known as the 'father of tropical medicine', Low was a pioneering force in the study of Caribbean diseases and the development of preventative medicine. His work on parisitology and importance of epidemiology and ecology was ground-breaking. This remarkable analysis contains, for the very first time, transcriptions of the thirty-one letters from Low to Sir Patrick Manson, Medical Advisor to the Colonial Office during this expedition. The letters reveal Low's thought processes and landmark discoveries in medical science. This handsome, hardback volume is ideal for all those with an interest in tropical medicine, medical and naval historians, and librarians.
