From the Greenwich Hulks to Old St. Pancras: A History of Tropical Disease in London
The story of tropical medicine is bound up with the growth of the British Empire; and the formal discipline of clinical tropical medicine owes much to the work of pioneering British doctors, whose achievements are signified in the St. Pancras Hospital for Tropical Diseases and the University of London's School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, medical centres of world renown.
Himself a notable physician in this field, a former Professor of Medicine in a number of tropical countries, Dr. Cook writes of these personalities and events, and the scientific background, with intimacy and expertise.
