Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Modern Colonization by Medical Intervention: U.S. Medicine in Puerto Rico contains the table of contents, and a list of tables and figures. The book explores the ways the changing administration of public health promoted not only new "object lessons" under U.S. colonial authority, but also competition between political groups in relation to the metaphor of public interest. This competition involved diverse elite in negotiating the terms of U.S. colonial authority and shaped the colonial relationship. Their outcome implicated not only medicine and the public health administration, but also Puerto Rico as a nation and Puerto Ricans as colonial subjects.

Keywords: public health; Puerto Rican physicians; U.S. colonial authority
