Novedad editorial: The politics of vaccination. A global history

The politics of vaccination. A global history

Edited by Stuart Blume, Christine Holmberg and Paul Greenough

"This collection of essays gives a comparative overview of vaccination at different times, in widely different places and under different types of political regime.

Core themes in the chapters include immunisation as an element of state formation; citizens' articulation of seeing (or not seeing) their needs incorporated into public health practice; allegations that donors of development aid have too much influence on third-world health policies; and an ideological shift that regards vaccines more as profitable commodities than as essential tools of public health."
