Summary
  • A history of general medical ideas and practices in Australia in the 19th and early 20th centuries that focuses on medical scientists' interest in "whiteness" - the medical construction of white Australia; the contribution of medical science and public health to the understanding of racial identity; white adaptation to the environment; Aboriginality and "hybrid Aboriginals"; tropical medicine
  • "The Cultivation of Whiteness examines the notions of "whiteness" and racism, and introduces a whole new framework for discussion of the history of medicine and science. Anderson provides the first full account of the experimentation in the 1920s and '30s on Aboriginal people of the central deserts - experiments whose revelation compelled a major Australian university to publicly apologize to the Aboriginal people. This pioneering historical survey of ideas will help to reshape debate on race, ethnicity, citizenship, and environment everywhere."-- Book jacket
