Each theory is followed by a commentary discussing its strengths, weaknesses, and practical use. Each chapter ends with a bibliography of further readings. Tables and figures throughout further enhance understanding. This edition includes revisions and updates to all sections as well as new sections on community organization and community building, evidence-based policy making, and health impact assessment."--Doody's Review Service
