Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ameeta E Singh, BMBS, MSc (University of Alberta)
Description: With a level of detail that is unmatched by any other textbook in the field of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), this book is the ultimate reference in this area.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive overview of historical, clinical, microbiological, and public health aspects of STDs.
Audience: The target audience is primary care clinicians as well as specialists in infectious diseases, including STDs. The editors and authors are leading authorities in their relevant fields.
Features: The book has virtually doubled in size since the last edition in 1999, reflecting the wealth of scientific data that has been generated since then. The introduction lists examples of major developments in the STD/HIV field over this time period. The chapters now contain color illustrations and, as with the previous edition, continue to be extensively referenced. In addition to updates to chapters on all STDs and HIV, new chapters have been added covering drug use and STDs, cervical cancer and STDs, pregnancy and bacterial STDs, and others.
Assessment: No question about it — this book is the ultimate resource for information about sexually transmitted diseases.
