Product Details

Praise

“If you want to step back and think more broadly about Coronavirus, the Universe and Everything, you could do worse than start with Plagues and the Paradox of Progress by Thomas J. Bollyky.”
LSE Review of Books

“A thought-provoking book that should be required reading for anyone working in public health or public policy arenas.”
Library Journal

“A thoughtful reminder of the social, economic and political complexities inherent in sustainable public health.”
Nature

“A remarkable new book.”
Financial Times

“[This book] brings to the task a remarkable command of history, science, technology, medicine, public health, and political science. Bollyky combines his scholarship with an unusually fluid, writing style that invites readers to read more. In mapping his many ‘worries’, Bollyky carefully treads a middle path between pessimism and optimism.”
The Lancet

Plagues and the Paradox of Progress provides a smart warning about our future without discounting the successes of our past.”
Health Affairs
