Overview

Now in a revised and expanded second edition, this essential text surveys the perspectives, methodologies, and theories that geographers use to address the subject of human health and disease. Wide-ranging and international in scope, the volume synthesizes knowledge from across the social, physical, and biological sciences. Chapters present current perspectives on the cultural ecology of disease; landscape epidemiology; developmental change and human health; biometeorology; disease ecology and spatial analysis in developed countries; spatial interaction in disease diffusion; and health care resources, delivery systems, and planning. For this second edition, most of the chapters have been substantially rewritten. Two entirely new chapters address issues in research methodology and techniques of data analysis, as well as GIS. Throughout, clearly presented vignettes demonstrate the use of advanced statistical tools; examine special issues, such as women's health; and discuss Internet resources and other topics of interest. Also featured are a wealth of tables, figures, and maps, including a 4-page full-color insert. Designed for use by students with varying backgrounds and levels of technical knowledge, this is an ideal primary text for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level medical geography courses. Students and scholars of epidemiology, medical sociology, international health policy and planning, and related fields also will find it an indispensable resource.

"...this revised & expanded 2nd edition surveys the perspectives, methodologies & theories that geographers use to address the subject of human health & disease with clearly presented vignettes, tables, figures & maps."

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This revised and expanded edition surveys the perspectives, methodologies, and theories geographers use to address human health and illness. Providing a broad-based, comprehensive survey of the diversity of medical geography, for upper-division undergraduates and graduates, the volume also serves as a reference for classifications, processes, and systems approached from a holistic and international perspective. In sum, the book provides necessary biology for geographers to understand disease processes and the necessary geographical background for health researchers to understand spatial processes. Topics include the biometeorology of health status, geographies of disease in economically developed areas, health care delivery systems worldwide, and worldwide pollution from noise, radiation, chemicals, and the byproducts of burning. Both authors are medical geographers, Meade at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and Earickson at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Annotation c.
