Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
The new, completely revised, and updated edition of this classic text --sponsored by the International Epidemiological Association (IEA) and previously edited by John Last-- remains the definitive dictionary in epidemiology worldwide. In fact, with contributions from over 220 epidemiologistsand other users of epidemiology from around the globe, it is more than a dictionary: it includes explanations and comments on both core epidemiologic terms and on other scientific terms relevant to all professionals in clinical medicine and public health, as well as to professionals in the otherhealth, life, and social sciences. Anyone seeking clarity on epidemiologic and methodological definitions important to human health will find it here. On the eve of a field trip to a foreign land, a health scientist remarked that if he had to limit his professional library to one volume onepidemiology, this would be the book he would choose.
The new edition of this classic text remains the definitive dictionary in epidemiology. In fact, it is more than a dictionary, with some reviewers remarking that if they had to limit their professional library to one volume, this would be the book they would choose. In the complex field of epidemiology, the definition and concise explanation of terms is a key to understanding epidemiologic concepts, and the dictionary goes beyond simple definitions, as it place each term firmly and clearly in its fuller epidemiologic context. The new edition sees Miguel Porta as editor, with the legendary John Last remaining as associate editor. There are a large number of new terms, and the new edition features new artwork and fresh, new, clean design.
