Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the antimalaria projects of Palestinian Arabs and Zionists in mandate Palestine. It explains that the issues of land disease brought about the interaction between the Palestinian Arab population and the Yishuv because Zionist antimalaria efforts were extended to the Palestinian Arab population primarily when the health of the Jewish community was threatened. The chapter argues that the Zionist images of the Palestinian Arab population in antimalaria measures reveal the place of the Arab community within the wider ideological project of transforming the health of the Yishuv and of Palestine's landscape.
