Abstract

This study investigates the tropical dangers in India in the late 19th and early 20th century through the Hungarian travel literature. The first part of the study examines the evolution of public health and the beginnings of the tropical medicine in India. The second part includes questions about madness and normal behaviour and I wrote about the lunatic asylum as well. The next section is about epidemic diseases like leprosy, malaria, cholera and plague. Tivadar Duka, M. D. and Ferenc Gáspár M. D. published articles about Colonial epidemics and public health. In order to control epidemics, special officers, committees, and commissioners were appointed by the British. Snake attacks also took their victims, so the British Government had to find a solution for the problem. In the last chapter I wrote about the use of psychoactive substances in India, like opium or cannabis.
