This is the fifth revision of what has become a standard text in the English language. It was written by experts from England, Europe, the United States, and some other countries, most of whom have had fairly extensive international experience. The 54 chapters cover the field of public health fully. Virtually each chapter provides a basic, organized approach, with a good bit of illustrative material and excellent references for further reading. The areas covered start with the scientific base of studying the health of populations and organizing and evaluating programs to protect health and to prevent and treat disease effectively
