The Long Struggle Against Malaria in Tropical Africa is the first history of malaria control efforts in tropical Africa. It is a pioneering contribution to the emerging sub-discipline of the historical epidemiology of contemporary disease challenges. It integrates materials from the fields of parasitology, entomology, and biomedicine to tell the story of malaria control in the context of tumultuous political, social, cultural, and economic change in tropical Africa from the late nineteenth century to the present. It compares the contemporary malaria eradication campaign with the first sign with the first malaria eradication campaign in the mid-twentieth century.
