Contagion and Chaos: Disease, Ecology, and National Security in the Era of Globalization (MIT Press)
Although the utility of such a perspective is mentioned throughout the book, Price-Smith might have employed its applications and insights more systematically especially given the book title to explicate the countervailing forces of complexity and security. Complexity intimates a lack of certainty and the unanticipated consequences of phenomena like epidemics, whereas security is a socially informed construction based on conventionally positivistic assumptions of prediction and control.
By neglecting the problem of how to reconcile these divergent tendencies, Price-Smith misses the opportunity to delve further into the ethics and politics of surveillance and social control, which surely have implications for the actions and capacity of the state.
