Infectious Disease Epidemiology has long been recognized as the most authoritative review of the epidemiology of infectious disease. The text is divided into five sections: methods in infectious disease epidemiology, airborne transmission, diarrheal diseases, blood and body fluids as reservoirs of infectious disease, and vector-borne and parasite disease. The most comprehensive and definitive text of its kind, Infectious Disease Epidemiology includes comprehensive reviews of virtually every known infectious disease.
The fully revised and updated Third Edition includes up-to-the-minute, state of the art chapters on methodological issues, infectious disease eradication, pneumococcal disease,  and pathogenesis. All chapters have been revised to reflect the most recent information available, including new information on malaria, HIV/AIDS, STDs, emerging infections, hepatitis, and useful models of behavioral change. Students will learn to apply new skills to problem-solving and the development of effective prevention strategies, and more experienced learners will find the text an invaluable resource for study and exploration.
This thorough revision has been completely updated with the most recent data on infectious diseases. It also offers three new chapters that cover:
  • Infectious Disease  Eradication (e.g. Smallpox, Polio, Measles)
  • Pneumococcal Disease 
  • Models of behavioral change that are useful in Infectious Diseases research
Praised by the American Journal of Epidemiology as ‘an excellent synthesis’ and ‘an outstanding textbook for students and scholars of Epidemiology and related biomedical fields,’ this expansive volume can serve as a practical reference for all health professionals.
