Synopsis:

"This work, featuring a reading level appropriate for high school audiences and above, is recommended for academic and public libraries."
?
Library Journal

The Encyclopedia of Obesity is as much of a reference resource as it is a tool to raise awareness in the medical and public health communities. With almost 500 entries, these two volume summarize pertinent topics in obesity and related health conditions, including molecular biology, psychology, medicine, public health and policy, food science, environmental health, and pharmaceuticals. The editor has chosen topics that capture the current climate of obesity research while still addressing and defining the core concepts related to this condition. Based on a theme of "Moving Forward in an Ever Expanding World" articles address topics for a changing society that is slowly adapting to accommodate obesity, including recent lawsuits, new options for medical and dietary treatment, and the importance of prevention in children.

Key Themes

Children and Obesity

Worldwide Prevalence of Obesity

The Encyclopedia of Obesity is intended to serve as a general and nontechnical resource for biology, sociology, health studies, and other social science students, teachers, scholars, researchers, and anyone in the general public who wishes to understand the development of obesity as it prevails in the United States and worldwide.

From Booklist: Authoritative information on obesity, a growing worldwide health concern, is of great interest. With signed contributions from more than 250 subject specialists, the Encyclopedia of Obesity readily fills the need for reference material. About 500 alphabetically arranged articles, targeted to a variety of audiences, from scholars to the general public, provide a broad overview. Among the key themes that are addressed are biological or genetic contributors to obesity (Adipocytes, Low birth weight, Tubby candidate gene); eating disorders (Binge eating, Eating disorders and gender); medical treatments for obesity (Gastric bypass, Liquid diets); obesity as a public health crisis (Built environments, Food marketing to children); societal influences and outcomes of obesity (Body image, Food advertising and obesity); and new research (Energy expenditure technologies, Whole-body potassium counting). A ?Reader?s Guide? assists readers in finding articles related by category or theme; however, the entry heads and indexing could use some improvement. Examples of topics that could be difficult to locate include cholesterol (the entry heading is Elevated cholesterol) and the connection between obesity and automobiles (the entry heading is Increased reliance on automobiles). The entry Implications of restriction of foods on child feeding habits is not found in the index under children. Bibliographies at the end of each article supply suggestions for further research. Supplementary materials include a resource guide of recommended books, articles, and Web sites; tables of the prevalence of obesity in males and females by country; and a nine-page glossary. A few black-and-white photographs augment the text. Notable for articles by a large number of experts in the field, the Encyclopedia of Obesity is an excellent source for reliable information on obesity and is recommended for undergraduate, public, and special libraries. --Nancy Cannon
