Description - Plagues and Politics by Andrew T. Price-Smith
Infectious diseases once thought to be controlled (such as malaria and tuberculosis) are now spreading rapidly across the globe, and lethal new disease agents (HIV/AIDS, ebola and BSE) continue to emerge at an ominous pace. Policymakers must consider the implications of disease proliferation for economic prosperity, general well being, and national security in affected societies. This work represents a collection of articles from authors in the field on the ramifications of disease emergence for international development, international law, and national security.
