Excerpt from A Sketch of the History and Cure of Febrile Diseases, Vol. 2 of 2: More Particularly as They Appear in the West-Indies Among the Soldiers of the British Army I do not pretend to explain it; and I only take leave to suggest that it is apparently connected with the unequal condition of organic sensibility existing at the time the morbid cause is applied, or that it explodes into action; a condition constitutional or contingent, as depending upon the operation of general or contingent causes to which the movements of animal life are exposed. - The forms of febrile disease which manifest prominent local action are numerous; I only advert to those that are important. Chapter I. Forms of Fever, the 'prominent Symptoms of which are manifested in the Organs which are contained in the inferior or Abdominal Cavity. Section I. A. Gastric, or Bilious Remittent Fever. The gastric, or bilious remittent fever is one of the most common, and one of the most important of the febrile forms which occur in armies, and even in civil communities.

These essays provide valuable insights into the early history of tropical medicine and from the standpoint of several European powers. They examine the kinds of medicine practised, the responses to local diseases and environments and diseases, the nature of the medical constituencies that developed, and the relationship between the old medicine of 'warm climates' and the emerging tropical medicine of the late nineteenth century.

Originally published in 1988, the essays in this book focus primarily on colonial medicine in the British Empire but comparative material on the experience of France and Germany is also included. The authors show how medicine served as an instrument of empire, as well as constituting an imperializing cultural force in itself, reflecting in different contexts, the objectives of European expansion – whether to conquer, to occupy or to settle. With chapters from a distinguished array of social and medical historians, colonial medicine is examined in its topical, regional and professional diversity. Ranging from tropical to temperate regions, from 18th Century colonial America to 20th Century South Africa, this book is an important contribution to our understanding of the influence of European medicine on imperial history.

British Military and Naval Medicine challenges the notion that military medicine was, in all respects, ‘a good thing’. The so-called monopoly of military medicine and the authoritarian structures within the military were complex and, at times, successfully contested.
