Modern democracy exists ever in tension with expertise. Never is this
tension more palpable than in times of crisis, when fear may easily combine
with the exigencies of responding quickly to imminent dangers to facilitate
the surrender of popular control to individuals and institutions that claim
special skills and authority to address the situation. In the Wake of Terror, edited by Jonathan Moreno, explores the ethics
and public health implications of responding to crisis.
