The first edition of this wonderfully titled book, Imperial Medicine: Patrick Manson and the Conquest of Tropical Disease, has six chapters and an epilogue and includes endnotes, an index, 17 illustrations, and four tables, but no foreword, preface, bibliography or glossary. It is approximately 6×9×1 in and could easily fit into a standard briefcase. The dust jacket, printed in two colors on white semigloss paper, adds appropriate visual and historical impact. The jacket design is generally attractive, and the hard cover is functional and adds longevity to the text. The author states that he teaches history at the University of California at Irvine.
