504    Includes bibliographical references and index 
520    "Over the last several decades, historians of public 
       health in Britain colonies have been primarily concerned 
       with the process of policy making in the upper echelons of
       the medical and sanitary administrations. Yet it was the 
       lower level staff that formed the backbone of public 
       health systems in the colonies. Although they constituted 
       the bases of many colonies public health machinery, there 
       is no consolidated study of these individuals to date. 
       Public Health in the British Empire addresses this gap by 
       bringing together historians studying intermediary and 
       subordinate staff across the British Empire.Along with 
       investigating the duties and responsibilities of medical 
       and non-medical intermediary and subordinate personnel, 
       the contributors to this volume show how the subjectivity 
       of these agents influenced the manner in which they 
       discharged their duties and how this in turn shaped 
       policy. Even those working as low level assistants and 
       aids were able to affect policy design. In this way, 
       Public Health in the British Empire brings into sharp 
       relief the disaggregated nature of the empire, thereby 
       challenging the understanding of the imperial project as 
       an enterprise conceived of and driven from the center"--
