Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since its founding in 1951, the Epidemic Intelligence Service, a training/service program for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has waged war on disease. When an epidemic hits, the EIS will be there to crack the case, no matter how deadly. Over the years it has had success battling polio, cholera, and smallpox, to name a few, and in recent years has turned to the epidemics plaguing us now H1N1, HIV/AIDS, and gun violence among them. The successful EIS model has spread internationally: former EIS officers have gone on to become leaders in the world of public health and have helped to establish similar programs around the world.

Inside the Outbreakstakes readers on a riveting journey through the history of this remarkable organization, following EIS officers on their globetrotting quest to eliminate the most lethal and widespread threats to the worlds health.

Synopsis:

Written with the same thrilling, minute-to-minute narrative force that made "The Coming Plague" as exciting as it was important, "Betrayal of Trust" is a monumental achievement and heart-stopping account of the other side of globalization and why it may be too late to avert a full-out health crisis.

Synopsis:

In this meticulously researched and ultimately explosive new book by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the New York Times bestseller The Coming Plague, Laurie Garrett takes readers across the globe to reveal how a series of potential and present public health catastrophes form a terrifying portrait of real global disaster in the making.
