Betrayal of Trust: The Collapse of Global Public Health
In this meticulously researched and ultimately explosive new book by the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author of The Coming Plague, Laurie Garrett takes on perhaps the most crucial global issue of our time. She asks: Is our collective health in a state of decline? If so, how dire is this crisis, and has the public health system itself contributed to it? Using riveting detail and finely honed storytelling, Garrett exposes the underbelly of the world's globalization to find out if it can still be assumed that government can and will protect the people's health, or if that trust has been irrevocably broken.
