Praise

“Resurgent TB is one of the nightmare faces of world poverty, a scourge whose principal vector is economic neoliberalism. But, as this brilliant and profoundly disturbing study makes clear, it will inevitably become a death sentence for the rich as well as the poor.”—Mike Davis

“… A very impressive collection that provides cross-national perspectives on the causes and consequences of the re-emergence of tuberculosis as a major public health problem … Essential reading for students, academics, medical personnel and health policy makers interested in the problem of TB and other modern plagues.”—Michael Worboys

“It is estimated that between 2002 and 2020, approximately 1,000 million people will be newly infected, over 150 million people will get sick, and 36 million people will die of TB.”—World Health Organization
