Editorial Reviews

John A. Robinson
This is the third edition of a book that focuses on how the understanding of the complex interplay of host environment and pathogens can improve our control of bacterial infections in humans. The loss of one of its founding editors inspired a touching tribute to his contributions to the field of infectious disease in general and preventive medicine in particular. An aggregate of expert authors describes specific bacterial diseases in a translational fashion, beginning with microbiology with an emphasis on pathobiological characteristics of organisms and how they affect transmission as well as epidemiologic characteristics. There is discussion of how the interplay of host, environmental, and microbiologic factors can possibly be modified to after a disease has been transmitted. All chapters are tightly edited to a specific format, and this will be a boon to the compulsive reader. The suggested readings at the end of each chapter are also a nice technical touch. Internists, microbiologists, public health officials, infectious disease subspecialists at all points in training should read this book. It is the leader in its field and is especially useful in its ability to blend basic science with public health concepts. Since most physicians really do not understand epidemiological concepts and the methodology of public health surveillance and disease control, the first three chapters of this third edition alone make it worth the price. It is excellent, readable, and understandable, and it should be required reading for all those who have a desire to really understand infectious disease and its relationship to human health. I had only very minor complaints: perhaps a bit more time shouldhave been spent on the emerging problems of the newer aspects of chlamydia and vasculopathy and Bartonella, Ehrlichia (especially the former's new relationship to homelessness); and unfortunately time to press prevented extensive discussion of the Lyme vaccine and the interesting results of the recently revealed vaccine trials. Still, this is a very good book, highly recommended for all those interested in the public health dimensions of bacterial diseases.
Journal of the American Medical Association
Overall, this is a fine text, current, clear, and concise, a useful reference that truly complements the more traditional textbooks of microbiology and infectious diseases. Students will discover the relevance of microbiology in clinical medicine, and practitioners will find a review of pathogenesis, epidemiology, and techniques for intervention. This volume will find a place on many physicians' bookshelves.

Description: This is the third edition of a book that focuses on how the understanding of the complex interplay of host environment and pathogens can improve our control of bacterial infections in humans.
