Interesting stories about epidemiology and public health
Pendergrast's book is well-written and provides a thorough chronicle of the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS). The book is divided into three sections of the EIS's history. The first section describes the initial development of the EIS from 1951 to 1970. The second section describes "the golden age of epi" from 1970 to 1982. The third section examines the activities of the EIS from 1982 to present.
This book is a good read for anyone generally interested in epidemiology and the history of public health. The book contains a number of interesting stories about the epidemics and other public health matters EIS has investigated or been involved in. The book also contains a very helpful and comprehensive list of resources that may be helpful for additional research.
