Summary

Chapter 6 takes the reader from the 1950s to rinderpest’s official eradication in 2011. The international effort had seriously limited the virus’s freedom of movement by the late 1950s and FAO considered it a success story at that point, but the fight was not over. This chapter explores the technological and bureaucratic innovations—the machinery—that ultimately made eradication possible. Studying those bureaucratic initiatives in particular demonstrates internationalism’s vitality throughout decades when it seemed to be lost and/or in decline. Indeed, the struggle to build a global community remained strong and was what made eradication possible
