Pressestimmen

An enlightening study of several generations' interactions between the Rockefeller Foundation's international health program and Mexican physicians, politicians, and administrators. Birn's book helps us track an evolving circulation of ideas, people, practices, and power and provides an invaluable -- if in some ways depressing -- insight into today's world of international health. --Charles E. Rosenberg, Ernest Monrad Professor of the Social Sciences, Harvard University Birn gives a prescient, nuanced, and deeply intelligent account of the relationship between the Rockefeller Foundation and the state in shaping public health in post-revolutionary Mexico. Brilliantly written in a highly inviting style, this is an "absolute must-read" for academics, policy makers, and activists concerned with the past and increasingly complex face of global health in the future. --James Orbinski, associate professor of medicine and political science, University of Toronto, and former international president of Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders (1998-2001) This impeccably researched, extremely accessible volume sets a new standard for studies of international public health. Steeped in recent innovative scholarship on global health, transnationality, and the close and often incongruous imperial encounters that circumscribe philanthropic initiatives, Marriage of Convenience crafts a richly textured account of the Rockefeller's extended relationship with Revolutionary Mexico. It also teases out its formidable and checkered legacy for international health collaborations right up until the present. --Gilbert M. Joseph, Farnam Professor of History and International Studies, Yale University, and co-editor of Close Encounters of Empire: Writing the Cultural History of U.S.-Latin American Relations
