Is the pace and scale of global trade endangering our livestock, hospitals and waterways? * How vulnerable is our food to bacterial, viral and fungal invaders? * Do certain trade goods cause more biological trouble than others? * And - most importantly - how can we do things differently? Whether it's pandemics like avian flu, the potential loss of most of the world's banana crops to disease, or the devastation of a foot-and-mouth epidemic, the deadly pace of globalization and biological traffic in all living things invites disaster. While we enjoy our twenty-first century global lifestyle - international travel, cheap imported cars, summer fruits in the supermarket year-round thanks to global food sourcing - it's all too easy to forget the downside. Pandemonium is a vital guide to the hidden consequences of globalization. Continue those preparations and protect what is uniquely yours: Australia.
