Overview

The thoroughly revised and updated Third Edition of the acclaimed Modern Epidemiology reflects both the conceptual development of this evolving science and the increasingly focal role that epidemiology plays in dealing with public health and medical problems. Coauthored by three leading epidemiologists, with sixteen additional contributors, this Third Edition is the most comprehensive and cohesive text on the principles and methods of epidemiologic research. The book covers a broad range of concepts and methods, such as basic measures of disease frequency and associations, study design,field methods, threats to validity, and assessing precision. It also covers advanced topics in data analysis such as Bayesian analysis, bias analysis, and hierarchical regression. Chapters examine specific areas of research such as disease surveillance, ecologic studies, social epidemiology, infectious disease epidemiology, genetic and molecular epidemiology, nutritional epidemiology, environmental epidemiology, reproductive epidemiology, and clinical epidemiology.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Bernard J. Turnock
Epidemiology has become an essential tool for both public health professionals and clinical practitioners. As a result, there has been a plethora of introductory and basic texts on the subject targeted to students and others seeking only a simple understanding of its basic concepts. This book presents the field in a broader and more comprehensive context. The basics are still provided, but not in a manner that facilitates learning through practicing the skills. Its primary intent is to serve as a resource and reference for the more serious practitioners of epidemiology, including researchers in public health and clinical sciences. Epidemiologists in public and private settings, researchers involved in both observational and experimental inquiry, and graduate level students in epidemiology and biostatistics will find this work of value. Less serious audiences will miss the usual practice problems and exercises usually found in the more basic epidemiology texts. The book's features are unremarkable. There is appropriate use of tables, graphs, and charts, although somewhat less frequent than one might expect. A unique aspect of this book is its comprehensiveness, with virtually all important topics covered in its 700-plus pages. This book will serve well as a resource and reference for epidemiologists and researchers. It is not the kind of book that a novice can pick up and digest easily. However, it very competently covers the field and its major applications in the 1990s by providing consistent threads and themes throughout its presentation of concepts and methods. This would be a solid addition to health science libraries in university and other research settings.

Description: Epidemiology has become an essential tool for both public health professionals and clinical practitioners.

This book presents the field in a broader and more comprehensive context. The basics are still provided, but not in a manner that facilitates learning through practicing the skills.
Purpose: Its primary intent is to serve as a resource and reference for the more serious practitioners of epidemiology, including researchers in public health and clinical sciences.
