From the PublisherREVIEWS OF THE CURRENT EDITION
"The current edition of Tropical Infectious Diseases: Principles, Pathogens, and Practice is the second edition of this outstanding textbook, which was originally published in 1999 and has become one of the essential resources for this extensive area of medicine.
The editors have successfully achieved a consistently high quality throughout this multiple-author text, which has a list of contributors that reads like a who's who of the tropical medicine world.
Many of the chapters in this section make very good use of tables to convey comparative aspects of their subject matter, in the tradition of most succesful reference textbooks.
This book, with its excellent multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary style, will appeal to students at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels and to clinicians and/or researchers at any stage of their career, and it is certain to become a 'must have' on the bookshelf." - Stuart D Blacksell, Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand on behalf of CID January 2007
"Tropical Infectious Diseases, now thankfully published in two volumes totalling nearly 1800 pages, is a superb collection of well-written, well-organised, and authoritative chapters that are as up to date as possible. Almost every chapter is outstanding and some are classics in their own right. There are new and refreshing contributions on social and cultural fators in tropical medicine; on migrant, immigrant, and refugee health; and on tropical infectious diseases in pregnancy. Many of the revised chapters are excellent, particularly those on malaria, respiratory infections, cholera, heaptitis and neurologic disease and those collected in the last of the volumes' three sections, "Practice: Approach to the Patient in the Tropics." This section and the other two - "Principles and General Considerations" and "Pathogens" - are clear and easy to navigate, and the accompanying CD-ROM is invaluable when one is travelling. For a textbook of this size, with more than 200 contributors, there is remarkably little overlap between chapters. The authors represent a who's who of experts on modern tropical infectious diseases, and the editors must have used extraordinary powers of persuasion to get this eclectic group to keep a uniform format and meet deadlines." - New England Medical Journal November 2006
"This impressive and essential resource, now in a new edition, presents thorough coverage of the history, description, and treatment of tropical infectious diseases worldwide, including a wide range that affect non-tropical countries." -SciTech Book News, Bol. 30, No. 2, June 2006
