“Michael Zeheter does an excellent job of situating cholera within an important international context of the time by comparing the disease’s impact on two very different British colonial urban spaces.” —Myron Echenberg, author of Africa in the Time of Cholera: A History of Pandemics from 1817 to the Present
“The strength of Zeheter's analysis lies in his exploration of colonial states and their politics through a set of two perfectly graphic examples.”—Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences
"Zeheter handles all these issues with an evident authority. In doing so, his work deserves to be regarded as a serious contribution to the wider fields of imperial medicine and imperial administration."
