Public Health at the Border of Zimbabwe and Mozambique, 1890-1940

This book is the first major work to explore the utility of the border as a theoretical, methodological, and interpretive construct for understanding colonial public health by considering African experiences in the Zimbabwe-Mozambique borderland. It examines the impact of colonial public health measures such as medical examinations/inspections, vaccinations, and border surveillance on African villagers in this borderland. The book asks whether the conjunction of a particular colonized society, a distinctive kind of colonialism, and a particular territorial border generated reluctance to embrace public health because of certain colonial circumstances which impeded the acceptance of therapeutic alternatives that were embraced by colonized people elsewhere. It asks historians to look elsewhere for similar kinds of histories involving racialized application of public health policies in colonial borderlands.

Francis Dube is Associate Professor of History at Morgan State University, USA. He specializes in the history of the environment and health in Southern Africa. Before joining Morgan State University, he was Assistant Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, USA.
