Foundations of Epidemiology has been widely used as an introductory text in a broad range of epidemiology courses. Minimal familiarity with statistics is assumed in the book. The text gives lucid, well-organized explanations of basic epidemiologic concepts such as rates and ratios, age-adjustment, incubation periods, investigation of an outbreak, time-place-and person, agent-host-environment, surveillance, screening, sensitivity, specificity, predictive value, odds ratios, and case-control study design. Epidemiologists, epidemiology students.

Review:

"The definitive introduction to epidemiology."--Dr. Cedric Garland, University of California at San Diego

"A standard text...The sections of the book on epidemiological studies and using epidemiological data are clear, comprehensive and use a wide range of references to illustrate the practical applications of the epidemiological techniques presented. The study problems at the end of each chapter are well thought out, enabling the reader to check their understanding of each section as they progress through the book. For those readers who are already familiar with the second edition of Foundations of Epidemiology, the revisions in this edition are quite extensive and include findings from recent epidemiological studies, such as those on AIDS and those which illustrate particular epidemiological problems. The third edition of Foundations of Epidemiology was built upon its tried and tested format and has successfully updated its content, making it a valuable book for those looking for a standard introductory text to epidemiology."--International Journal of Epidemiology

"The third edition of Foundations of Epidemiology provides a long awaited and much needed updating for this classic text."--Michael Moser, Kansas University Medical Center
