This book explores the history of malaria from an environmental, epidemiological, and socio-economic viewpoint, with the aim of helping the reader understand why malaria is still a major public health problem today, and what its future control prospects are. It describes the different 'schools of malaria control' that have existed, and how the arrival of DDT changed their thinking. 'This is a fine, powerful little book. I would make all molecular-malaria graduate students read it before they clone their first gene...Come to that, I would insist that their mentors read it too.' Robert Desowitz, "Nature".
