The Hot Zone by Nirjay Mahindru Summary

‘The original reason for creating the concentration camps was to keep there such people whom we rightfully considered enemies of the State’ Herman Goering, Nuremberg Trial, 1946 Three British Asians are incarcerated in an unfamiliar land. Guilty or innocent? The journey of five characters is explored at their point of intersection. All is not what it seems. Truth and deception, reality and fabrication are woven together in this powerful tale that explores one of the most controversial aspects of modern day counter-terrorism. Inspired by the Guardian dossiers of interviews at Guantanamo Bay, this illuminative and daring new play looks at how the global ‘war on terror’ has rocked our perceptions of national and religious identity. Mixing fact and fiction, horror and dark humour, The Hot Zone boldly addresses the political abuse of human rights today.

Inside the Hot Zone by Mark G. Kortepeter Summary

Inside the Hot Zone is an insider’s account of one of the most dangerous workplaces on earth: the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) in Fort Detrick, Maryland. Retired U.S. Army Col. Mark G. Kortepeter, a leading biodefense expert, recounts his journey from the lecture hall to the role of department chief, to the battlefield, to the Biosafety Level-4 maximum containment lab, and finally, to the corner office. During Kortepeter’s seven and a half years in leadership at USAMRIID, the United States experienced some of the most serious threats in modern germ warfare, including the specter of biological weapons during the Iraq War, the anthrax letters sent after 9/11, and a little-known crisis involving a presumed botulism attack on the president of the United States. Inside the Hot Zone is a shocking, frightening eye-opener as Kortepeter describes in gripping detail how he and his USAMRIID colleagues navigated threats related to anthrax, botulism, smallpox, Lassa, and Ebola. Kortepeter crafts a rich and riveting narrative as he wrestles with life-and-death decisions managing biological weapon exposures. The stories are real, but they could just as easily serve as plotlines in popular fiction or Hollywood thrillers. He gives the reader a seat at the table as each crisis unfolds, with an unvarnished and personal perspective on the dangers, the drama, the fear, the frustrations, the irony, and the uncertainty he encountered as a physician in the role of “Biodefender.”

Planète de virus by Carl Zimmer Summary

Il y a plus de virus sur Terre que d'étoiles dans l'univers ! Cela est difficile à croire. Et pourtant... Nous ne vivons ni sur la planète bleue ni sur celle des singes, mais bien sur celle des virus. Ils sont les plus petits êtres vivants connus de la science mais sont partout. Sous la calotte glaciaire de l'Antarctique, dans les océans, qui en abritent l'équivalent en poids de 75 millions de baleines bleues, et bien sûr, dans tous les organismes vivants dont ils sont les hôtes indésirables. A commencer par notre espèce... Rhume, grippe, Ebola, MERS, chikungunya ; virus géants ou surgis du passé. Pas une année sans que les virus fasse planer la menace d'une épidémie dévastatrice et posent de nouvelles questions à la science. Comment évoluons-nous avec eux depuis des millénaires (8% de notre génome est d'origine virale) ? Le changement climatique conduira-t-il à des épidémies encore plus mortelles ? Les virus que l'on croyait disparus à jamais peuvent-ils ressusciter ? En 10 récits brillants et incisifs, sans aucun jargon, Carl Zimmer fait la lumière sur les secrets de ce fascinant univers méconnu.
