First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xiv,(2),[3]-258. Index. Map. 8vo, blackcloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Students of the African past have paid sc ant attention to problems of disease and medicine, despite the extensive social, economic, political, and demographic consequences of the continent's heavy burden of endemic and epidemic diseases. The major purpose of [this book] is to introduce Africanists to the fundamental role of disease and medical conditions in the continent of Africa and to illustrate to them the potential significance these questions haave to their own research. Simultaneously, the volume provides medical historians with interests outside Africaan understanding of Africa's experience with disease and medical care. An introductory chapter presents basic epidemiological ideas, advances a general hypothesis of the main lines of disease history in Africa, and discussesa wide ranqe of problems that require additional research. Seven chapters are case studies of relationships between disease and society in various geographical areas of Africa. These essays include contributions on the social consequences of disease in nineteenth century East Africa, the course andimpact of epidemics in twentieth century Chad and southern Ghana, labor mi gration and heaitn in Cameroon, river blindness and the weaknesses of colonial health care in northern Ghana, and the course, consequences, and control measures against tick-borne relapsing fever in East Africa and the louse-borne form of the disease in Sudan. A concluding bibliographical essay surveys the existing literature. The book is primarily addressed to Africanists, but as a pioneering work on a continent whose medical past is still largely uncharted, it should be of interest to historians of medicine and to scholars concerned with colonilism in Africa and other world areas."

Pp (4),v-xii,1-273,(3), frontispiece + 24 pp plates. Endpaper Maps. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "When the aviation age began at the start of the centturv. Africa was still the Dark Continent. Much of it was only partially explored, and most of it was very inaccessible. This was still largely true even at the end oi the rtrst World War. It was, perhaps, partly because of this that so many pioneering flights were made throughoutthe Continent, continuing even up to 1939. The lack of roads and railways presented a challenge which could be accepted with optimism by enthusiasts for air travel. In this book David Jones describes these flights in detail,together with the Airline Structure which grew out of them. The result is a historical record of great interest and value, and an account of human endeavour and detetermination which will grip the reader whatever his interests may be." (from the dj).
