From the Publisher"A significant theoretical and empirical contribution, which deserves consideration by scholars, advanced students and international health practitioners. I thoroughly recommend it."
"[Davies] draws skilfully on a variety of literatures ... to map the political dimensions of global public health, and pinpoints precisely the disquieting conclusions that result from such an exercise."
"Davies' text is particularly useful in providing a critique of recent efforts to incorporate health within the traditional logics of the field."
Cambridge Review of International Affairs
"A well researched, well written and enjoyable book on global health that covers a vast array of topics without ever being too technical."
Dr M. Edelstein, Royal Society of Medicine
"Health is now a political issue on a global scale. Sara Davies' excellent book allows us to understand the tensions created by this development and is essential reading for students and scholars of International Relations."
Colin Innes, Director of Centre for Health and International Relations, Aberystwyth University
"Davies' book is an informative, comprehensive and deep examination of the relationship between politics and health."
Jillian Clare-Kohler, University of Toronto
"The discussion of global health as an issue of 'high politics' has never been more salient. Sara Davies' excellent book makes an important and insightful contribution to the intensifying debates over 'health security' and global health governance. Essential reading for scholars, policymakers and students alike."
Andrew Price-Smith, The Colorado College and author of Contagion and Chaos and The Health of Nations
