dc.description.abstractThe Ebola outbreak in west Africa, the almost ever present danger of an avian influenza in Asia, the deliberate insertion of anthrax in envelopes addressed to unsuspecting US federal employees, the threat of biological warfare and bioterrorism. How can national budgets, security apparatuses and politicians' attention span be prepared for the broad range of security threats that come in biological form? This important new book aims to answer this question by examining four contemporary biosecurity dilemmas—protect or proliferate; secure or stifle; remedy or overkill; and attention or neglect—that illustrate some of the tensions raised by securitizing responses to naturally occurring and man-made disease risks.
