Gerstman (health science, San Jose State U.) introduces graduate and undergraduate students in public health, health education, and nursing, and practicing health professionals to epidemiological principles and methods used in medicine and public health. He covers disease causality, epidemiologic measures, random and systematic error in studies of casual factors, the infectious disease process, outbreak investigation, screening for disease, and advanced biostatistical and epidemiologic techniques, such as survival analysis, Mantel-Haenszel techniques, and tests for interaction. This edition incorporates all requirements of the American Schools of Public Health Epidemiological Competencies and includes additional practical exercises, case studies, and more examples. It has full chapters on descriptive epidemiology, study design, experimental studies, observational cohort studies, and case-control studies. The section on epidemiologic history has been expanded to incorporate developments in the first half of the twentieth century. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
