Publisher's Synopsis

Geoff Manaugh and Nicola Twilley's Until Proven Safe tracks the idea of quarantine around the globe, through time and space, chasing the story from the lazarettos and quarantine islands of Venice - built before communicable diseases were really understood - to the hallways of the CDC, NASA, and the cutting-edge labs and conference rooms where the future technology of quarantine is being developed. The result is a dazzling, thrilling tour of an idea that could not be more urgent or relevant, a book full of stories, people, and insights that is as irresistible and compelling as it is definitive.
