Reviews

"Richard Preston's red zone--beset by ethical, medical, and epidemiological quandaries--shows us at our worst and at our best. This is a story about people, not pathogens, but, even as Preston focuses on one group of clinicians, nurses, and scientists at an underresourced hospital in West Africa, he makes devastatingly clear the worldwide fragility of our public-health systems. Global inequities have epidemiological consequences. This chronicle is haunting, yet not without hope. In spare, gripping prose, he illuminates how our interlinked age can make for enormous vulnerability--but also resilience."--Kwame Anthony Appiah, professor of philosophy and law, New York University

"Crisis in the Red Zone reads like a thriller. That the story it tells is all true makes it all more terrifying, and there's no one who could tell it better than Richard Preston."--Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History
