about

This book shows why contests over intellectual property rights and access to affordable medicines emerged in the 1990s and how they have been 'resolved' so far. It argues that the current arrangement mainly ensures wealth for some rather than health for all, and points to broader concerns related to governing intellectual property solely as capital

Editorial Reviews

'This is a masterly example of how the international political economy in which we all live should be analysed. Muzaka takes the highly technical and deeply complicated issue of intellectual property rights and access to affordable medicines and reveals with great acuity and skill the politics that shapes the way decisions are taken and power wielded in this important arena of policy. She has produced a study that is both empirically rich and theoretically sophisticated.' Anthony Payne, Department of Politics, University of Sheffield, UK
