From the Preface- "Malaria has played a spectacular role in influencing the outcome of the long struggle for the development of Panama as an inter-oceanic gateway for world commerce. The sanitary measures which made possible the construction and maintenance of The Panama Canal caused a reduction in mosquito-borne diseases, but the control of malaria is still a problem."
