Bulletin of the History of Medicine

"Katerina Gardikas’s Landscapes of Disease is filled with vignettes sure to intrigue many readers. Historians of malaria will enjoy the multifaceted view of a setting neglected in the existing literature. Historians primarily interested in modern Greece will appreciate this lens for understanding the new nation from its founding through the 1970s, when malaria was eliminated there. Much is here for those interested in public health and state development, as well. This book is a welcome contribution and increases our understanding of the fight against one of humanity’s oldest foes."
