Perhaps no other public policy issue has greater potential to affect some of the most significant economic, political, social, and ethical changes of the 21st century than global health. In this book, a scholar/physician team authors a comprehensive introduction to global health issues and emphasises the potential of public health intervention to improve the longevity and quality of human life across the globe. The authors have lived and worked in Africa as well as in medically underserved areas of the United States, so they write with firsthand experience and authority. Using themes of interconnectedness, globalisation, and united concern from citizens, this book encourages readers to consider the role that they might play as engaged citizens in taking on the global public health challenges of the 21st century including everything from AIDs and flu to tobacco, obesity, and threats in conflict zones.

Debra L. DeLaet is Professor of Politics and International Relations at Drake University. David E. DeLaet is Assistant Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

Review:

"This teacher- and student-friendly book belongs on the shelves of all human rights teachers. Our wellness depends on factors far beyond our own bodies or our national boundaries, the authors demonstrate. Informed citizens should heed the lessons of the DeLaets' clearly organized, fact-filled, and first-rate book."
--Claude E. Welch, Jr., SUNY Distinguished Service Professor, University at Buffalo

"Global Health in the 21st century: The Globalization of Disease and Wellness is an outstanding, comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to global health. This textbook provides an excellent foundation for global health students from which they can build new approaches to improving health outcomes throughout the world from a variety of perspectives."
--Michael W. Diamond, Northwestern University and President of World Resources Chicago

"Students, academics, and practitioners will truly enjoy Global Health in the 21st Century. It is a superbly written text that takes an interdisciplinary, cross-national approach to global health issues."
--Laura L. Janik, University of Northern Iowa

"An outstanding introductory text for those studying and interested in global health, whether they have a health background or not...written in a fluid and engaging style, it includes some personal examples--including 'Under the Microscope' special features--that help to ground the work and make it come alive. This volume is heartily recommended."
--Richard Smith, Head, Faculty of Public Health & Policy, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
