The Fury of Covid-19: The Politics, Histories and Unrequited Love of the Coronavirus

31 October 2020

Vinay Lal

This book takes a focussed look at the social effects of COVID-19 rather than the science behind it, examining how lockdowns were instituted and borders shut across the world, as well as the huge crisis it caused migrant workers in India. It also puts forth ideas about the pandemic’s implications for the environment and world economies.
