Product details

Product Description


Much interesting material and probing analysis can be found in this text, which is suitable for graduate students and academics concerned with the intersection between cities and health. ( Canadian Journal of Sociology , July 2009)


"In this unique and invaluable reconstruction of how the deadly SARS virus hitchhiked from China to Canada in 2002–03, we are squarely confronted with the enormous inadvertent biological consequences of economic globalization and the emergence of so–called ′world cities′." – Mike Davis , University of California, Irvine "As both an urban/environmental sociologist and resident of Toronto during the 2003 SARS crisis, I have the highest praise for Networked Disease . The contributors have done a masterful job identifying the practical and theoretical challenges associated with the global spread of emerging infectious diseases. This cutting edge material should seriously engage academics, students, and practitioners in social geography, urban studies, public health, and environmental sociology." – John Hannigan , University of Toronto
