520    In The Colonial Politics of Global Health, Jessica Lynne 
       Pearson explores the collision between imperial and 
       international visions of health and development in French 
       Africa as decolonization movements gained strength. After 
       World War II, French officials viewed health improvements 
       as a way to forge a more equitable union between France 
       and its overseas territories. Through new hospitals, 
       better medicines, and improved public health, French 
       subjects could reimagine themselves as French citizens. 
       The politics of health also proved vital to the United 
       Nations, however, and conflicts arose when French 
       officials perceived international development programs 
       sponsored by the UN as a threat to their colonial 
       authority. French diplomats also feared that anticolonial 
       delegations to the United Nations would use shortcomings 
       in health, education, and social development to expose the
       broader structures of colonial inequality. In the face of 
       mounting criticism, they did what they could to keep UN 
       agencies and international health personnel out of Africa,
       limiting the access Africans had to global health 
       programs. French personnel marginalized their African 
       colleagues as they mapped out the continent's sanitary 
       future and negotiated the new rights and responsibilities 
       of French citizenship. The health disparities that 
       resulted offered compelling evidence that the imperial 
       system of governance should come to an end. Pearson's work
       links health and medicine to postwar debates over 
       sovereignty, empire, and human rights in the developing 
       world. The consequences of putting politics above public 
       health continue to play out in constraints placed on 
       international health organizations half a century later.--
