Pressestimmen"Resurgent TB is one of the nightmare faces of world poverty, a scourge whose principal vector is economic neoliberalism. But, as this brilliant and profoundly disturbing study makes clear, it will inevitably become a death sentence for the rich as well as the poor." - Mike Davis "...A very impressive collection that provides cross-national perspectives on the causes and consequences of the re-emergence of tuberculosis as a major public health problem ... Essential reading for students, academics, medical personnel and health policy makers interested in the problem of TB and other modern plagues." - Michael Worboys, Centre for the History of Science, Technology and medicine, University of Manchester.
