Book Description:

Provides an overview of major health trends, summarizes the current state of the world's health, and examines the pattern of modern epidemics, the impact of disability, and the causes of premature death in rich and poor countries alike, with examples drawn from diverse geographical and medical areas.

Review:

'... an important book. It will be of enormous value to students of public health, medicine, nursing and other health sciences. It provides an accessible but challenging understanding of the state of public health and ends with a forward-looking discussion of future possibilities.' Pauline Barnett, PHA News

'... stimulating ... an excellent and informative contribution to the discourse. Medical public health specialists will find it a valuable resource for building a stronger basis for practice; for other public health scientists it will be a persuasive advocate for their right to share the speciality. Clinical colleagues who wonder 'what public health specialists do all day' could turn profitably to this book: it will answer, at least, what those specialists should be doing.' Rosalind Stanwell-Smith, Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

'The accessible style of this book, liberally illustrated with bullet points and chapter summaries, should ensure its place on the reading lists of schools of public health throughout the English-speaking world. Who knows, it may help to inspire a new generation of public health practitioners to become broader, braver and more effective than their forebears.' Angela Coulter, Health Economics

'This is a well argued, up-to-date, and stimulating book that reviews the history, achievements and future challenges for public health. The book is to be recommended.' Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of London

'... exciting reading ... Everyone with an interest in health must read this book.' Pacific Health Dialog

'There are few good texts that focus on such international comparisons, making this book a welcome addition to the field. This is a very solid book that presents useful information and insights on public health around the world.' Bernard J. Turnock, Pulmonology

'Although written primarily for students and public health professionals, there is a great deal in this book for the general reader, and the conclusions are important, not only for health systems all over the world, but also to the way we must reconstruct and reform all of our domestic and international government agencies.' Bob Douglas, The Australian National University

'This book is essential reading for those who wish to look beyond traditional public health and the mechanics of everyday epidemiology to new possibilities and more appropriate strategies and methods.' Landesinstitut för den Offentlich Gesundheitsdienst NRW

'This book presents a very readable amalgam of information and critical thinking, as well as several challenges to its readers.' David Lyle, Newsletter of the Australian Faculty of Public Health Medicine
