Pandemics and Peace examines disease surveillance networks of the Mekong Basin, Middle East, and East Africa to answer two interrelated questions:
Why is interstate cooperation in an area of national vulnerability occurring among countries with a history of conflict?
How do public-private networks deliver transnational public goods (health), and what factors facilitate or impede effective and legitimate transnational governance?
“This excellent book is rich in information and insight, comprehensively conceived, with wise and timely policy suggestions. Long provides a detailed analysis of three regional organizations that cooperatively conduct infectious disease surveillance programs that function among countries with contentious relations in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and East Africa. This is an admirable work based on solid research and a thorough use of relevant theories.”Louis Kriesberg, Maxwell Professor Emeritus of Social Conflict Studies, Syracuse University
