The suggestion may seem odd but many states around the world believe precisely that. Confronted with pandemics bioterrorism and emerging infectious diseases governments are transforming their security policies to include the proactive development acquisition stockpiling and mass distribution of new pharmaceutical defenses.

And do citizens around the world ultimately stand to gain or lose from this pharmaceuticalization of security policy? Stefan Elbe explores these complex questions in Pandemics Pills and Politics the first in-depth study of the world s most prominent medical countermeasure Tamiflu. Taken by millions of people around the planet in the fight against pandemic flu Tamiflu has provoked suspicions about undue commercial influence in government decision-making about stockpiles.

Pandemics Pills and Politics shows that the story of Tamiflu harbors deeper lessons about the vexing political economic legal social and regulatory tensions that emerge as twenty-first-century security policy takes a pharmaceutical turn. At the heart of this issue Elbe argues lies something deeper: the rise of a new molecular vision of life that is reshaping the world we live in.
