This is a comprehensive resource on the pandemics that threaten our world.Throughout history, pandemics have rapidly spread across national and continental borders to inflict an insurmountable toll on human life and suffering. From the Black Death in Asia and Europe to the smallpox and polio outbreaks that decimated the Americas, to the contemporary concerns over HIV/AIDS and the avian flu, epidemics have been a continous threat to society and the world.""Pandemics and Global Health"" begins with an introduction that reviews major types of infectious agents and modes of transmission and then provides a historical overview of infectious diseases and our attempts to control epidemics. The introduction is followed by detailed case studies of the United States, China, Africa, and India. Each of these case studies outlines a recent outbreak and the government's response, demonstrating the need for transparency, government commitment, and adequate financing in the fight against major diseases. Gathering key information on many contemporary international public health issues, this is a valuable resource for anyone wanting to become more informed on global health concerns.
