Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This edition includes many recent developments in the areas of epidemiology, molecular epidemiology, prevention, and treatment of human rabies, and control of wildlife and dog rabies…This book on all aspects of rabies provides worthwhile updates and is a good overall reference for scientists, students, and anyone with an interest in the prevention and control of rabies." Rating: 5 Stars—Doody.com, March 7, 2014 "Laboratory and field specialists in rabies describe developments in understanding, preventing, and treating the disease since the second edition was published in 2007."—Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anne L. O'Keefe, MD, MPH (Douglas County NE Health Department)
Description: This third edition of a comprehensive reference on rabies presents up-to-date, multidisciplinary information from recognized experts about this ancient disease that remains a threat to both the developed and undeveloped world. The second edition was published in 2007.
Purpose: This edition includes many recent developments in the areas of epidemiology, molecular epidemiology, prevention, and treatment of human rabies, and control of wildlife and dog rabies.
Audience: A diverse audience, including physicians, veterinarians, virologists, immunologists, wildlife biologists, public health practitioners, and students, will find this book valuable.
Features: The 20 chapters cover topics ranging from the history of the disease to future developments and challenges. The book covers epidemiology of rabies in animal species and humans, as well as molecular epidemiology of the virus. Other topics include pathogenesis, immunology, laboratory diagnosis, vaccines, public health management, prevention, and control. Illustrations and figures are of high quality and each chapter contains comprehensive references. The foreword, with its nice, detailed summary of what is new and of significance in this edition, shouldn't be skipped.
Assessment: This book on all aspects of rabies provides worthwhile updates and is a good overall reference for scientists, students, and anyone with an interest in the prevention and control of rabies.
From The Critics
Containing chapters written by people from the fields of neurology, pathology, veterinary medicine, virology, immunology, biology, epidemiology, geography, and history, this group of 15 papers presented by Jackson (neurology, microbiology, and immunology, Queen's U., Canada) and Wunner (The Wistar Institute, Philadelphia, USA) covers material on rabies that will be of interest to clinicians. Topics include a description of the virus, epidemiology, animal and human susceptibility, pathogenesis, pathology, immunology, vaccines, public health management, control of dog rabies, and control in wildlife.
