9781405161336: Networked Disease: Emerging Infections in the Global City (Studies in Urban and Social Change)

A collection of writings by leading experts and newer researchers on the SARS outbreak and its relation to infectious disease management in progressively global and urban societies.

  • Presents original contributions by scholars from seven countries on four continents
  • Connects newer thinking on global cities, networks, and governance in a post-national era of public health regulations and neo-liberalization of state services
  • 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

Book Description:

Of late, possible global pandemic scares have garnered much attention from the media and health professionals. Debates abound over just how prepared health care systems worldwide are to deal with the fallout from an outbreak of the avian flu, SARS, anthrax, West Nile Virus, Ebola, or other emerging infectious diseases. Yet the urban aspects of such diseases -particularly within the context of globalizing cities and the global cities network - have been virtually ignored. Detection, monitoring and response strategies must be compatible with the current political, social, economic and ecological developments unfolding within our increasingly complex world.This collection examines the impact of globalization on the transmission of and response to SARS in Toronto, Hong Kong, and Singapore. With contributions from some of the most distinguished scholars in the field - along with newer, innovative works by aspiring junior researchers - the book uses the SARS outbreak as a springboard for further discussion about infectious disease management in progressively global and urban societies. This tightly integrated thematic selection offers a unique and timely contribution to a vitally important field of research.
