About this work
"Health of Empire is a transnational history of public health and intellectual thought following the U.S. imperial expansion of 1898. José Amador shows that physicians and intellectuals in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Brazil, and not just itinerant American health officials, defined the political and cultural terms of public health campaigns"-- Provided by publisher.
