‘The growth of public health courses aimed at undergraduates has created a new need for textbooks that are appropriate and stimulating. Miranda Thurston has succeeded in producing something which strikes the right note. It is wide ranging in scope without being superficial and is accessible to the young learner. It is a sort of 'Wiki'. Just what the aspiring public health practitioner ordered.’ – Professor John R. Ashton C.B.E., President of the UK Faculty of Public Health.

Key Themes in Public Health comprises a series of introductory essays exploring key themes and concepts in public health.

Ranging from political and economic concern with improving population health and reducing health inequalities, to debates about how to protect populations from new health threats, as well as a concern with individual responsibility for lifestyles and behaviour, the themes discussed include: determinants of health, globalisation, evidence, climate change, ethics, development, poverty, risk and population.

Presenting provocative ways of thinking about key ideas in a concise fashion, each essay provides a basic grounding in the relevant theme as well as a departure point for further study by:

  • Defining the theme in an accessible way
  • Placing each idea in its particular social, political, economic and historical context
  • Illustrating its application and significance for public health

  • Identifying and exploring issues surrounding each of the themes

This text provides an accessible overview for students new to public health who want to get to grips with the full range and complexity of this diverse and multidisciplinary field.

About the Author:

Miranda Thurston is Professor of Public Health at Hedmark University College, Norway.

Review:

'Miranda Thurston’s book is a series of introductory essays exploring key themes and concepts in public health. It is arranged in alphabetical order (from ‘Advocacy’ to ‘The welfare state’) for easy reference and each of the themes are highlighted when mentioned in other parts of the book for easy cross-reference. This work is therefore a mini encyclopaedia of public health, but such a description does not diminish its use in any way, as all the concepts, facts and research are incredibly well referenced for further indepth reading.' Ian Brown, Occupational Medicine Volume 65 Issue 1 January 2015
