The Prevention of Malaria
The Federated Malay States
- - -
This is a facsimile reprint of the second edition (1921) of Watson's classic work. Although Ronald Ross in India had been the first to discover that malaria was carried by mosquitoes and that limiting the insects' breeding areas would reduce the spread of the disease, it was left to Watson to put Ross' ideas into practice for the first time. Watson's successful methods were copied elsewhere in the tropics saving millions of lives. 381 pages with many tables and some black and white photographs.
