In this paper represents a short narrative history of the Foot & Mouth Disease outbreak (FMD) in the UK, 2001.

In particular this paper suggests that there are structural confusions inherent in the framework of disease control and response, whereby policies adopted to serve one outcome have precisely the opposite consequence.
