Overview

The expanded Second Edition of Dr. Rothman's acclaimed Modern Epidemiology reflects the remarkable conceptual development of this evolving science and the engagement of epidemiologists with an increasing range of current public health concerns. This landmark work is the most comprehensive and cohesive text on the principles and methods of contemporary epidemiologic research.Coauthored by two leading epidemiologists, with 15 additional contributors, the Second Edition presents a much broader range of concepts and methods than Dr. Rothman's single-authored original edition. Coverage of basic measures and study types is more thorough and includes a new chapter on field methods. New chapters on advanced topics in data analysis, such as hierarchical regression, are also included. A new section covers specific areas of research such as infectious disease epidemiology, ecologic studies, disease surveillance, analysis of vital statistics, screening, clinical epidemiology, environmental and occupational epidemiology, reproductive and perinatal epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, and nutritional epidemiology.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Bernard J. Turnock, MD, MPH (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: 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.
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.
Audience: 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.
Features: 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.
Assessment: 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.

    Comprehensive but challenging

    This informative text would be a fantastic addition for someone with a solid understanding of fundamental epi principles. It's particularly useful when supplemented with an introductory text like Gordis' and a separate biostatistics text. It is not, however, an appropriate introduction to the field - it is much too comprehensive and is quite difficult to follow.
