Updated: Feb 11, 2021

“The Press believes that the information contained in this book is time-sensitive, urgently needed, and will make a positive contribution toward navigating the current pandemic,” said Dr. Jay Dew, director of TAMU Press. “To that end, we are pleased to make the book available to all by releasing it immediately as a free pre-publication edition.”

The book's wide audience includes the general public, policymakers, and those in charge at the city, county, state, and national levels for emergency response and preparedness. The book advocates the One Health concept which is the focus on the interdependence of human, animal and environmental health which helps us to prevent and prepare for pandemics.

In this regard, the book is meant for everyone because it highlights the roles we all play in pandemic prevention and preparedness.

Christine Crudo Blackburn, editor of the book, is deputy director of the Pandemic and Biosecurity Policy Program at the Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs at the Bush School of Government and Public Service and an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Health Promotion and Community Health Sciences at the Texas A&M University School for Public Health.
