"This is an excellent, comprehensive overview of the field of public health for use by graduate level the editor iterates: the breadth of public health is widening with new diseases, emerging knowledge of old diseases, and societal changes requiring new methods of public health control. This book covers all aspects in a relevant, useful manner. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
