Old Paradigms, New Meanings
This chapter, which sums up the key findings of this study of the connection between the malaria control project in Palestine during British rule and the Zionist nationalist movement, suggests that the symbols of malaria and swamp drainage are charged in contemporary Israel and are frequent topics in contemporary Israeli culture. It also highlights the role of health and disease in Zionist mythology and argues that the narrative of Zionist settlement is not just one of labor but also of illness, death, and an accompanying martyrdom.
