1 - 2 weeks availability


In International Health Statecraft, Ulysses B. Panisset addresses the question of whether international health phenomena, such as the 1991 cholera epidemic in Peru, influence the international relations of the affected country. The speed and volume at which people, commodities and microorganisms are currently crossing borders has increased significantly over the past decades, and as a result has changed the scope of international health. Panisset proposes a novel analytic model to help develop global cooperation and far-reaching policies that anticipate and respond to pandemics, regional environmental toxicology disasters, and other health phenomena. Organized into five cohesive chapters, International Health Statecraft will be of interest to foreign policy and public health decision-makers, analysts, students, and scholars.
