Overview


Published in 2008, the first volume of Public Health focused on issues from the dawn of western civilization through the Progressive era. Volume 2 defines the public health challenges of the twentieth century--this important reference covers not only how the discipline addressed the problems of disease, but how it responded to economic, environmental, occupational, and social factors that impacted public health on a global scale. Major illnesses such as cancer, HIV, and tuberculosis are addressed, along with lifestyle concerns, such as tobacco and nutrition. Chapters also explore maternal-child and women's health, dental public health, health economics and ethics, and the role of philanthropy. Each chapter begins with an in-depth introduction, followed by three original articles that illustrate the problem. The volume is enhanced with a detailed chronology of public health events, as well as appendices that contain many of the original documents that ushered public health into the new millennium.

Editorial Reviews

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

"The editors have assembled a remarkably comprehensive and balanced set of milestone studies and provide insightful introductions to the challenges faced by public health practitioners during the twentieth century."

— Manning Feinleib

Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health

"Schneider and Lilienfeld have produced a text that captures the enormous breadth of public health over the past century as it expanded its scope from disease and disability to environment and occupational control."

— David K. Rosner

Choice

"Twentieth-Century Challenges succeeds the first volume in this set. While volume 1 used selected works from individuals who drove the development of public health, volume 2 acknowledges technical advances, social movements, and the economic developments that drove the discipline. Recommended."
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health - Manning Feinleib

"The editors have assembled a remarkably comprehensive and balanced set of milestone studies and provide insightful introductions to the challenges faced by public health practitioners during the twentieth century."

"Schneider and Lilienfeld have produced a text that captures the enormous breadth of public health over the past century as it expanded its scope from disease and disability to environment and occupational control."
Journal of the History of Medicine

"A thoroughly engaging book. This is a book to be savored, to be picked up, and sampled from time to time."
