Overview

Dictionary making never ends because languages are always changing. Widely used throughout the world, this book will continue to serve as the standard English-language dictionary of epidemiology in its Fourth Edition. It covers all the common terms used in epidemiology and many from related fields such as biostatistics, infectious disease control, health promotion, genetics, clinical epidemiology, health economics, and medical ethics. The definitions are clear and concise, but there is space for some brief essays and discussions of the provenance of important terms. Sponsored by the International Epidemiological Association, the dictionary represents the consensus of epidemiologists in many different countries. All the definitions were reviewed repeatedly by an international network of contributors from every major branch of epidemiology. They are authoritative without being authoritarian. The Fourth Edition contains well over 150 new entries and substantial revisions of about the same number of definitions, plus a dozen new illustrations. Many of the new terms relate to methods used in enviromental and clinical epidemiology.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A book that should be on the reference shelves of epidemiologists, both classic and clinical, and in the offices of journals that publish what these epidemiologists write. At its price, this hardbound book with content reflecting hours and hours of intellectual work by experts is a bargain. The International Epidemiological Association brings itself great credit for sponsoring it."--Annals of Internal Medicine

"An impressive compilation of essential terms in the field...With nearly 300 definitions added and an equal number expanded since the previous edition, it will appeal to a large audience, including those who now use the earlier versions. The editor and associate editors of this editionshould be commended for a clear and extensive compilation of terms....The book is an excellent reference for novices in epidemiology."--Canadian Medical Association Journal

"Last's Dictionary of Epidemiology has become indispensable to all practising epidemiologists, all graduate students of epidemiology, and increasingly, members of other disciplines who need to understand the terms that epidemiologists have coined and refined....[A] revision well done, of a book that remains indispensable, and an edition that you should obtain as soon as possible so that you can keep up to date with a rapidly evolving field."--Annnals of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada

"Last's Dictionary is a nearly indispensable reference for persons involved in epidemiology or public health."--Chronic Diseases in Canada

"This book needs no recommendation as its predecessor has already made its name. We should thank Professor Last and all his contributors for providing us with such a useful tool."--International Journal of Epidemiology (on a previous edition)

"What can be said is that definitions...were usually presented clearly, logically, and comprehensively. The definitions are given in a narrative and almost conversational manner."--The Epidemiology Monitor (on a previous edition)

"The third edition of this book has been substantially revised from the second, including almost 300 new entries and a similar number of revised definitions . . . . This edition represents a welcome update."--Canadian Journal of Public Health
