When the west coast of Africa experienced a catastrophic outbreak of the deadly disease, Ebola, Dr. Steven Hatch went to Liberia to serve as an infectious disease specialist at an Ebola Treatment Unit, one of the key "hot zones" of the epidemic. The crisis brought out both the best and the worst elements of human nature, as well as highlighting how systems of global inequality contribute to the spread of contagion throughout our increasingly interconnected world. Hatch is a thoughtful and analytical writer who is able to communicate the stresses of participating in a large-scale relief effort with considerable insight.
