Communicable diseases are major global health concerns that can devastate whole populations. This revised and updated textbook examines communicable diseases at the community level from an epidemiological perspective, covering both theory and practice in a systematic and globally comprehensive overview of communicable diseases and their control. It includes expanded coverage of epidemiology and clinical aspects, many summary tables and coverage of both developed and developing countries from tuberculosis and malaria to bioterrorism and hospital infections, drawing on the author's personal experience of working in many global locations.

Review:

"A comprehensive review of communicable diseases, their epidemiology, and control methods...Intended as an introductory text for medical students, public health professionals, and field personnel, this book also functions as a clear reference for physicians, epidemiologists, and disease control workers."--Biological Abstracts/RRMRG

"This book provides a useful introduction to the theory and practice of communicable disease control with particular emphasis on problems relevant to the developing world....This is very much a working handbook as well as a reference tool for inexperienced and experienced practitioners alike."--International Journal of Epidemiology

"This marvelous book is well organized, clearly written, comprehensive and, although designed for a specific audience (physicians), is likely to serve a much broader audience of students, human biologists, and health scientists. ... In addition to its value as a reference work for rural and Third World physicians, this book is also useful as an epidemiology primer for beginning students. ... The book is liberally illustrated with clear and simplified drawings of life cycles of microorganisms and parasites, maps of worldwide disease distributions, and relationships among agents, patterns of transmission, human hosts, and environments. For the physician, the book provides instructions on control of transmission and appropriate drug and other therapies. For the student and professional, the book's comprehensive treatment of a remarkable number of diseases makes it important for reference and as a source for a quick review."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
