  • Provides an important contribution to the global public debate on the challenges of emerging infectious disease in cities
  • Examines the impact of globalization on future infectious disease threats on international and local politics and culture
  • Focuses on the ways pathogens interact with economic, political and social factors, ultimately presenting a threat to human development and global cities
  • Employs an interdisciplinary approach to the SARS epidemic, clearly demonstrating the value of social scientific perspectives on the study of modern disease in a globalized world
