In the 21st century, contagious diseases have become an urgent concern for the global community with the spread of HIV, anthrax, mad cow disease and multi-drug-resistant TB. These diseases have an alarming capacity to defy boundaries, and despite immense scientific and bureaucratic efforts to understand contagion, it still manages to evade control and prevention. Contagion explores the intriguing endeavours taken to manage disease over the past two centuries - the perceived threat to masculinity from moral contagion in fin-de-sice France, the management of leprosy in Australia's tropical north, the debate about animal-to-human organ transplantation, the response to the recent anthrax scare in the USA.
