This is an atlas of the changing world and regional distribution of disease based on extensive primary and historical research. It covers diseases both past and present, and shows the distribution of various diseases in specific parts of the world through a series of related maps and diagrams, employing a range of approaches to the mapping and statistical analysis of medical data. Both static cross-sections and time-based maps are used, and the authors advance a basis for critically evaluating the effectiveness of maps in medical literature. It is the first work of its kind to present a spatial analysis of the spread of AIDS in an epidemiological context. It also charts the demise of smallpox, and the spread and control of many other significant diseases including measles. Radiation hazards such as the fallout from the Chernobyl disaster are also mapped and analysed. Each entry gives technical details of the relevant disease, a summary of and commentary on the method employed for mapping and analysis, maps and tables, a guide to further reading and other epidemiological applications.
