Abstract

Mike Davis gives a clear and comprehensive picture of how the capitalist economy exacerbates a pandemic. The book is quite timely and relevant. It has enriched the literature on pandemics, plague and pestilence. Davis has aptly exposed the key roles played by agribusiness and the fast food industry. He has highlighted a capitalist global system going out of control to create ecological preconditions leading to a pandemic.
