Book review: Controlling tobacco around the globe
In the current issue of Governance, Paulette Kurzer of the University of Arizona reviews Global Tobacco Control: Power, Policy, Governance and Transfer by Paul Cairney, Donley Studlar and Hadii Mamudu. The book examines two topics, Kurzer says: Why did it take governments so long to recognize the health consequences of smoking? And why did policy action vary if the problem is the same across the globe? The book “is a superb examination of an important question . . . [A] first-rate account of tobacco control that will be a standard text for years to come.” Read the review.
