The threat of global pandemic disease is currently mobilizing experts, governments, and the exploding industry in 'security'; and yet this has all happened before. Medicine at the Border explores the pressing issues of border control and infectious disease in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries. Alison Bashford places world health in world history, microbes and their management in globalization, and disease in the history of international relations, bringing together leading scholars on the history and politics of global health. The contributions show how infectious disease has been central to the political, legal, and commercial history of nationalism, colonialism, and inter-nationalism over the modern period.
