Summary
"In this book, Simon Rushton explores the politics of pandemics in the contemporary world. Arguing against a tendency to treat global health security as a technical challenge, the book stresses the need for a vibrant, and even confrontational, political engagement around the implications of securitizing public health"--Provided by publisher
