This book examines the colonial state's approach to venereal disease and 'vice'-driven health risks in the first half of the nineteenth century. Further, it shows that these decisions had wide-ranging and often surprising consequences not simply for the army itself, but for India and the empire more broadly. Shortlisted for the 2014 Templer Award.
