Dark Winter: Inside pandemics and biosecurity

Raina MacIntyre

A fascinating, and often disturbing, insider’s view of global biosecurity.

In Dark Winter, world-leading epidemiologist and biosecurity expert Raina MacIntyre uncovers the history of biological warfare (and why it is called the ‘poor man’s nuke’), developments in genetic engineering and synthetic biology, and
the potential for catastrophic laboratory accidents. MacIntyre explores the debate around the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, investigates vested interests and explores the shifting narrative since the beginning of the pandemic. She also looks ahead to how we might avoid future pandemics along with the national and global security needed to manage quantum changes in technology
