This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this book, which is about the history of malaria control and the Zionist nationalist movement in mandatory Palestine during the period of British rule between the years 1920 and 1947. The book traces the foundations of the ethos of Jewish redemption and the social and physical transformation of the Jewish body in the contested land of Palestine. It examines the land's ecological transformation in its connection to nationalist ideology, the power of science and technology coupled with nationalist doctrine, and the consequences of that doctrine upon the topographical, demographic, and epidemiological landscapes of Mandate Palestine.

Keywords:   malaria control, Zionist nationalist movement, mandatory Palestine, Jewish redemption, nationalist ideology, science, nationalist doctrine
