The third edition of The New Public Health is the most comprehensive book available on the new public health. It offers the reader the opportunity to gain a sense of the scope of the new public health visions, and demonstrates importance of the challenges to this approach to world health
issues. Based on the premise of previous editions - that the new public health offers the chance of greatly improved equity by raising world health standards - this new edition has been fully revised to reflect recent changes in the theory and practice of the new public health.
Baum investigates knowledge and methodologies from across the social sciences, environmental sciences and humanities, from epidemiology and demography, sociology and social work, to urban planning and political science. By drawing on theories as they best illuminate the practice of new public
health, Baum illustrates the broad and multidisciplinary nature of public health practice, and provides students with a basis for action.
Divided into eight parts, the book considers the context and history of public health internationally and within Australia, then investigates the political economy of public health, research methods used throughout the discipline, patterns of Australian health and inequalities as compared to
international standards, the health of the environment, the health of individuals, alternatives to current thinking towards health and sustainability, and finally makes an assessment of the future of public health.
