Cheglin Liu’s Chinese Law on SARS examines the political and legal aspects of the Chinese government’s reaction to the SARS epidemic between November 2002 and June 2003. This 7th addition to Hein’s Chinese Law Series traces the development of SARS and analyzes the contrasting responses of the government both before and after April 20, when the national campaign against SARS was officially launched and the government enacted laws that would play a crucial role in containing the epidemic. Liu’s work will serve as a valuable resource for anyone interested in public health law in China. All of the major legislation on SARS and other infectious diseases have been translated from Chinese into English by the author and are included in the appendices.
