"This volume presents readers with a multiplicity of sites and measures implicated by quarantine policies in settings as diverse as the East, South and Southeast Asian regions, the Red Sea, the Mediterranean, and the Pacific and Atlantic Worlds. ... Readers will find in this rich volume a wealth of valuable materials and insights that will surely inspire others to continue to listen to these voices." (Lucia Dacome, Social History of Medicine, Vol. 31 (3), August, 2018)

"This collection of essays provides a rich assortment of historical contexts for understanding its past complexities and hence its present implications. ... Quarantine is a fine book. Its authors skilfully employ both primary and secondary sources, and the endnotes for each chapter are bouquets of bibliographic information for interested readers." (Jo N. Hays, Australian Historical Studies, Vol. 43 (3), August, 2017)"Local and global histories is a valuable collection which offers an abundance of material for comparative histories of maritime quarantine. Bashford's introduction envisages the collection as a first step towards 'an account of the principal lazarettos of the world in an era of globalization' ... and a compelling case has certainly been made for further work in this direction." (Michael Joseph, The Mariner's Mirror, Vol. 4, 2017)
