"Taking a well-articulated case study approach, Thomas highlights the impact of global epidemics across the social and economic development spectrum. Covering the necessary biological, social, and structural influences on the Ebola virus disease process, as well as global and local community response to the Ebola outbreak, this book will be of interest to a broad readership. It will also be a very useful teaching tool."

"Global Epidemics, Local Implications offers a masterful case study of the Ebola outbreak in Dallas to show how partnering with its African immigrant community, rather than blaming and stigmatizing it, ultimately worked to defuse the crisis. A must-read for all who care about health in a globalized world."

"In this eye-opening, important book, Thomas brings the study of immigrant incorporation and epidemics together in a creative and ground-breaking account that should be required reading for scholars of immigration and global health."

"In Global Epidemics, Local Implications, Kevin J. A. Thomas brings the global epidemic of Ebola into the conversation about global migration and intercommunication among nations and people. The issues discussed in this book are relevant for current debates about immigration and quality of life in receiving nations like the United States. This book is a winner both for its theoretical and methodological achievements."
