This book explores the history of malaria from an environmental, epidemiological, and socio-economic viewpoint, with the aim of helping the reader understand why malaria is still a major public health problem today, and what its future control prospects are. It describes the different `schools of malaria control' that have existed, and how the arrival of DDT changed their thinking. `This is a fine, powerful little book. I would make all molecular-malaria graduate students read it before they clone their first gene... Come to that, I would insist that their mentors read it too.' Robert Desowitz, Nature
