Reviews

King presents fresh new ways of thinking about the ways in which political and economic environments shape human health, and his in-depth examples, born from years in the field and a deep understanding of the local, social, and political environments he studies, sheds light on how these broad processes shape both health vulnerability as well as public health responses to these health threats. --Bulletin of the History of Medicine The primary significance of this book is its integration of social ecological with political contexts of health and infectious disease in developing countries. Its main strength is concise analysis that applies history, relevant theory, and research to public health and infectious disease control policy in sub-Saharan Africa. It complements interdisciplinary research and analysis in public health, medical anthropology, sociology, economics and global health policy. --Health Tomorrow
