Editorial Reviews

Review

“Echenberg’s richly textured and deeply discerning account of the last plague pandemic is, as he points out, a cautionary tale of the politics of disease control in a globalized world. It should become compulsory reading for all who are engaged in the construction of the new discipline of global public health.”
-New England Journal of Medicine

“Echenberg’s richly textured and deeply discerning account of the last plague pandemic is, as he points out, a cautionary tale of the politics of disease control in a globalized world. It should become compulsory reading for all who are engaged in the construction of the new discipline of global public health.”
-Dorothy Porter,in The New England Journal of Medicine



“Well written and fluent in narrating its stories, this work can provide good reading not only for historians and students specializing in medicine, but for a wider public as well.”
-Journal of World History

,

“Provides an in-depth look at the ineffectiveness of certain public health disease control measures such as quarantine, isolation of patient contacts, and the importance of using knowledge of the pathogen’s disease ecology for the development and implementation of effective control measures.”
-International Journal of African Historical Studies

,

“[Echenberg] does an excellent job of presenting complex political and social consequences of the plague.”
