From the Back Cover:

The New Public Health, Third Edition

Theodore H. Tulchinsky, Braun School of Public Health, Hebrew University-Hadassah, Jerusalem, Israel

Elena A. Varavikova , Research Institute for Public Health Organization and Information, Moscow, Russian Federation

"The need for a robust public health response to the challenges facing society is greater now than it has been for many decades. The global financial crisis has been seized upon by those who see an opportunity to challenge the responsibility of the state for its citizens, and above all those who are most vulnerable. In the tradition of Rudolph Virchow, the public health community must speak out, marshalling the evidence, formulating policies, and showing that there is an alternative. In this third, substantially revised, edition of what is now established as one of the leading textbooks on the theory and practice of public health, Tulchinsky and Varavikova draw on a wealth of examples from all parts of the world to instruct, invigorate, and inspire us."

-Martin McKee CBE, Professor of European Public Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London , United Kingdom

Fully revised and updated, this classroom proven approach to understanding the role of community in a healthy society presents the latest information in a focused, accessible format. Case studies and updated data provide a real-world global view to understanding the questions of Public Health.
