Item description for The New Global Threat: Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome and Its Impacts by Tommy Koh, Aileen Plant & Eng Hin Lee...
A disease that has given globalization a bad name, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), has plagued no fewer than 30 areas in recent months. In this book, for the first time, leading scientists and researchers converge to shed light on the impacts and implications of this new global threat.
Collected together within the volume are more than 20 articles that discuss and examine the SARS outbreak from wide-ranging perspectives political, social, economic and health. The reader is given insights into how the SARS outbreak has altered public and political understanding of the threat of infectious disease in general. There are lessons for global public health that have emerged from the response to SARS, especially as they pertain to preparedness for the next new disease.
Informative but not heavy, insightful but not overwhelming, The New Global Threat: Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome and Its Impacts is an indispensable source of information for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of the hitherto unknown disease students, academics and corporate leaders alike.
