This book weaves the history of public health, nationalism and race in Australia and the British Empire into a master narrative of imperial projects on hygiene, segregation and borders. Imperial Hygiene broke new ground in the global history of medicine and in the years to come will remain a vital text for scholars working on colonial and global health.'
Dr Pratik Chakrabarti, University of Kent, UK
