The Politics and Crisis Management of Animal Health Security addresses the 2001 foot and mouth epidemic in the United Kingdom - one of, if not the, most significant crises ever to face the UK farming industry. Underpinned by interviews with politicians and bureaucrats and with significant primary documentary analysis the book shows that the crisis was a critical juncture in how disease outbreaks have been planned and managed ever since. The author explores how this event affected policy and governance arrangements for managing subsequent disease-induced threats (such as avian influenza and bovine TB) and concludes by considering the temporality of lesson learning by the UK government including the current and future challenges associated with managing incongruent risks (e.g., flood protection, swine flu and Ebola). This book provides students of public policy and administration with a significant illustration of how key concepts and analytical lenses from public policy can be applied to the study of the contours of practical policy change.

`What happens "below the radar" once a major crisis has receded? How should we be governed? What lessons should be learned? John Connolly has just written the definitive book, empirically rich and conceptually sophisticated, on what happened to the governance of animal health issues in the aftermath of the UK's foot and mouth crisis.'
Allan McConnell, University of Sydney, Australia

`Connolly's book shows vividly how the interlinked disciplines of policy studies, political science and crisis management can be used to understand policy and organisational change in response to crisis. Grounded in theory, constructed through painstaking empirical research, and topped off with sound analytical insights into lesson learning, this book provides its own lessons into how to produce excellent research.'
David Judge, University of Strathclyde, UK

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
