Reviews

"Dr Silver has deep knowledge of the economy and the health system of America and the disproportionate challenges they pose to the 14 percent black population and other minorities. This provides the space for his critical appraisal of the impact of the pandemic on the unending race inequality that has fueled several agitations in America’s political history. “Pandemic, Public Health, Race and Class: The American Challenge” is a fascinating reading companion which provides a step-by-step understanding of how America has dealt with previous pandemics in the past and why the Coronavirus pandemic has exposed a Leadership ‘starting from behind."
Kojo Yankah is former Member of Parliament and Minister of State and Minister of Central & Ashanti Regions in the Republic of Ghana. He is also the founder and past president of the African University College of Communications, AUCC, in Accra, Ghana
