Summary
"Debates abound over just how prepared healthcare systems worldwide are to deal with the fallout from infectious diseases. Yet the urban aspects of such diseases 7F 13 particularly within the context of globalizing cities and the global cities network 7F 13 have been virtually ignored. This collection examines the impact of globalization on the transmission of and response to SARS in Toronto, Hong Kong, and Singapore. With contributions from some of the most distinguished scholars in the field 7F 13 along with newer, innovative works by aspiring junior researchers 7F 13 Networked Disease uses the SARS outbreak as a springboard for further discussion about infectious disease management in progressively globalizing and urbanizing societies. This tightly integrated thematic selection offers a unique and timely contribution to a vitally important field of research." -- Back cover
