Until Proven Safe: The History and Future of Quarantine

More Details

Quarantine operates through an assumption of guilt: we are considered infectious until proven safe. Geoff Manaugh and Nicola Twilley have been researching quarantine since long before the COVID-19 pandemic, and their timely book tracks the history and future of quarantine around the globe. As compelling as it is definitive, the book is an up-to-the-minute investigation of the interplay of forces–––biological, political, technological––that shape our modern world.
