9780739147566: SARS from East to West

SARS from East to West is the production of international collaboration investigating the first major pandemic in the new millennium, SARS. As the only major outbreak of a deadly infectious disease in modern times, the SARS case is an excellent example of an emerging contagious disease in an interdependent and interconnected world and provided the bases for how subsequent pandemics, like the bird flu and swine flu, are viewed and managed.

Eva-Karin Olsson and Lan Xue bring together crisis management scholars with genuine knowledge of the geographic area covered in each of the chapters to examine the response to the SARS crisis at national and international levels, as well as media analysis.

About the Author:

Eva-Karin Olsson is senior analyst at the National Center for Crisis Management Research and Training at Swedish National Defense College. Lan Xue is professor and dean of the School of Public Policy and Management, executive vice president of the Development Research Academy for the 21st Century, and director of China Institute for Science and Technology Policy at Tsinghua University.

Review:

This volume offers a unique multidisciplinary and cross-national perspective on institutional and media responses to the SARS outbreak. Its in-depth coverage of key outbreak events, decisions, actions and media representations in China (including Hong Kong) and Canada helps us understand just how disruptive and challenging even a medium-fatality viral outbreak like SARS can be. This book is a must-read for students of disasters and emergency management world-wide. (Paul 't Hart, Utrecht University and Australian National University)

This rich and ground-breaking book synthesizes a multitude of evidence and argument to provide the definitive explanation of how the world responded to SARS. It also offers valuable lessons on how to prepare for and cope with the devastating potential of transboundary pandemics. It is a must-read for scholars and practitioners in the field. (Allan McConnell, The University of Sydney)
