Coggon and Gola’s book is an impressively eclectic collection of essays on global health from the point of view of social and distributive justice. Global health is concerned with the health of populations on a global scale, and with health inequalities between different populations. Issues such as pandemic disease and health disparities between the Global North and the Global South are considered to be within the purview of global health. The book’s overarching aim is to offer “researchers, students, activists and policy-makers” an accessible, multidisciplinary primer on issues in this field. It includes a variety of content, from ethical theory, to policy pieces to a critique of educational programs on biological weapons.
