(p.181) Chapter Five Perceptual Landscape
Healing the Land and the Nation
University of Chicago Press

This chapter, which examines the history of colonial medicine, scientific experimentation, and the medicalization of Palestine, suggests that Zionist malariologists' discoveries and experiments were social and political events that added a new layer to the sociocultural history of Mandate Palestine given their connection to nationalist agenda. It highlights the Zionist health officials' belief that it was only by knowing the land and the enemy that effective malaria control and nationalist transformation took place.

Keywords:   colonial medicine, scientific experimentation, medicalization, Palestine, sociocultural history, nationalist agenda, nationalist transformation, malaria control
