                                              accept U.S. military superiority and U.S. political supremacy in managing global affairs.

                                                Over the last 20 years, the national security community has engaged with disease-related
                                              issues that have traditionally been the scope of public health agencies. The federal
                                              government’s response has been to create a single national biodefense strategy, which
                                              has been largely ineffective in improving conditions due to poor terminology, a lack of
                                              leadership, and a failure to assess government programs.
                                              Applying a public policy framework, Albert J. Mauroni examines how the government
