Professor Price-Smith publishes new book

"Contagion and Chaos: Disease, Ecology, and National Security in the Era of Globalization" by Andrew Price-Smith, assistant professor of political science, was recently published by MIT Press. Price-Smith's new book analyzes, through various case studies, the relationship between public health and governance, particularly looking at how disease affects national security. His newest publication adds to his previous work on the subject, including "The Health of Nations" (MIT Press, 2002), the book "Downward Spiral: HIV/AIDS, State Capacity, and Political Conflict in Zimbabwe," which he co-authored with John L Daly (USIP Press 2004), and the book "Plagues and Politics: Infectious Disease and International Relations," of which he was editor (Palgrave 2001).
