The threat of global pandemic disease is currently mobilizing experts, governments, and the exploding industry in 'security'; and yet this has all happened before. Medicine at the Border explores the pressing issues of border control and infectious disease in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries. Alison Bashford places world health in world history, microbes and their management in globalization, and disease in the history of international relations, bringing together leading scholars on the history and politics of global health. The contributions show how infectious disease has been central to the political, legal, and commercial history of nationalism, colonialism, and internationalism over the modern period.

Review:

"It is rare for an edited collection of essays to be of consistently high quality, relevance and readability. Medicine at the Border is one such volume . . . Combining the disciplines of history, anthropology, public health, and social policy, and bringing together scholars from five continents, Medicine at the Border shows how the study of contemporary public health demands the crossing of disciplinary boundaries." - Alex de Waal, Program Director, Social Science Research Council

"This book helps us make sense of the place of disease control in a globalized world. It shows how, historically, national, colonial, international and global issues have been enmeshed in the development of modern public health responses. It demonstrates the connections between nationalism and the use of the 'hygienic shield' of border regulation. I can recommend it to all those who want an informed analysis of the historical roots of current concerns about global pandemics." - Virginia Berridge, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, University of London, UK

"These wide-ranging and probing essays are an essential guide to the new and sometimes frightening world of biocommunication, biopreparedness and biosecurity. Together they reveal the larger biological and microbial dimensions of globalization and outline a telling post-colonial critique of the contemporary politics of national and international health." - Warwick Anderson, University of Wisconsin, USA
 
"As editor Alison Bashford states in Chapter 1, we live in the 'age of universal contagion' (p.1), which positions diseases as much more than just body-related afflictions. Rather, they allow us to illuminate the connections between politics, medicine, and human rights." - Iro Filippaki, LSE Review of Books
