Additional Book Details

The first of its kind, this volume brings together essays by respected experts in national security and related fields on the many legal dimensions of the COVID-19 pandemic. Events have unfolded so quickly and so unpredictably that it has been difficult to integrate the myriad ways in which the coronavirus has challenged legal and political institutions in the United States and elsewhere.

This book critically examines those challenges through a variety of lenses, including the history of epidemics; public health institutional arrangements; the tools available for maintaining public order and marshalling resources; the elusive but crucial role of leadership; transparency and access to information; and military aspects, including lockdown operations, the responsibility of commanders, and the administration of justice within the armed forces.

Because the pandemic has from the outset ignored national boundaries, the contributors at times offer candid comparative assessments. The book is intended for the general reader and includes notes and questions that make it an excellent and timely resource for university courses in law, political science, public health policy, and public administration.
