This is a collection of original studies on the new international health and welfare organisations between the First and the Second World Wars. The diversity of such organisations and their many-sided activities make this a rich and complex area of historical investigation which has direct relevance to current issues in international health. Multilateral organisations such as the League of Nations and a variety of types of non-governmental organisations are discussed. The role of scientific and professional factors, as well as the priorities of women's employment, eugenics and pronatalism are also considered. Together, the various chapters present a cohesive and integrated view of a hitherto neglected area of study. The book also complements comparative studies of welfare states by emphasising the importance of international interactions between expert groups in a broader political and social context.

MEDIA REVIEWS
' ... carefully edited ... immensely thought-provoking ... an excellent overview of the research undertaken in the field of international health organizations.' Historical Journal
"This book represents an innovation in the history of medicine....The importance of a first collection of this kind is that it sets up the field for those who follow after....the essays themselves are packed with names all documented....As collections go, this one is unusually homogenous, clearly the result of active and thoughful editing....The literature on this new field is just beginning to build up, and this is a book that all scholars working in it are going to need." PAuline M. H. Mazumadar, International History Review
