As COVID-19 rages, parallels are sought with the coronavirus epidemic of 2003 and earlier pandemics.  McGill-Queen’s University Press has, therefore, made the 2006 edited volume, SARS in Context: Memory, History, Policy freely available online. 

Edited by Jaclyn Duffin and Arthur Sweetman, the volume first reflects on SARS but then goes much further. Five historians of disease place SARS in the context of plagues/epidemics past. Further, three chapters address public policy in the aftermath of SARS, including an introduction to economic issues in epidemiology, a study out of governance in pandemics, and an analysis of the economic impacts of SARS and pandemic influenza.
