About the Author

Thomas J. Bollyky is the Director of the Global Health Program at the Council on Foreign Relations and an Adjunct Professor of Law at Georgetown University.

Reviews

A thought-provoking book that should be required reading for anyone working in public health or public policy arenas.

--Library Journal

A thoughtful reminder of the social, economic and political complexities inherent in sustainable public health.

--Nature

A remarkable new book.

--Financial Times

[This book] brings to the task a remarkable command of history, science, technology, medicine, public health, and political science. Bollyky combines his scholarship with an unusually fluid, writing style that invites readers to read more. In mapping his many 'worries', Bollyky carefully treads a middle path between pessimism and optimism.

--The Lancet

Plagues and the Paradox of Progress provides a smart warning about our future without discounting the successes of our past.

--Health Affairs
