Synopsis: A unique and resourceful study of 19th-century Shanghai, this historical work explores the origins of communal health in the city and the measures deemed essential for its protection. It tells the story of the efforts directed toward the implementation of preventive medicine and how the institutionalization of public health claimed a central place in both the private and public sectors of foreign settlements. The book describes an era that will interest all those concerned with the history of public health administration and the implementation of health services.
