Virtually every school of public health in the country teaches a global health course, yet the major textbooks on the subject offer coverage of technical and policy oriented issues, but pay very little attention to the actual practice of international health. At present, professors must fillthe gaps with personal anecdotes and second-hand stories. This new book comprises a series of case studies presenting vivid accounts of international health crises as told by people who were there. Each case is introduced by the editors, written by a key figure in the story, and followed by a seriesof practical questions and other learning tools to help examine the pertinent issues and debates. Aimed primarily at public health students and professionals, this book will be a much-needed addition to the existing literature. Related fields, such as development and urban studies, will find thisbook an engaging introduction to the field of international health. International health practitioners, national and local policymakers, foundations officers, and other related professionals will also find it a useful compendium.
Daniel Perlman is a Medical Anthropologist at the School of Public Health at the University of California at Berkeley. Ananya Roy is an Associate Dean of the Division of International and Area Studies at the University of California at Berkeley.
