Book News Annotation:

For academics and students of intellectual property, law, and international health, political economy, and development, Shadlen (London School of Economics and Political Science, UK) et al. present 12 essays that examine pharmaceutical development, access to medicines, and the protection of public health in the context of the globalization of trade and production and the increased harmonization of national regulations on intellectual property rights, particularly patents. Contributors working in development studies, law, sociology, economics, social sciences, and international relations in Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Africa consider what the changing economic, industrial, and political contexts mean for developing countries' pharmaceutical industries, health policies, and access to medicines, and national policy responses in Africa, Asia, and the Americas in areas like increasing local production capacity, reducing prices of essential medicines, regulatory issues, increasing the protection of intellectual property rights, increasing coverage of and access to healthcare services, the effects of patents and regulatory changes on drug prices, reducing the price of antiretrovirals for HIV/AIDS treatment, licensing, selling generic drugs in retail outlets set up in government healthcare, research and development efforts, and pharmaceutical innovation.
