Description - Modern Infectious Disease Epidemiology by Johan Giesecke

The second edition of Modern Infectious Disease Epidemiology, in line with changing health concerns, is a thorough revision of the first. Written from an infectious disease perspective throughout, the book aims to teach epidemiology to those with a background in this field. It seeks to fill the gap between the standard textbooks of epidemiology, which rarely approach the subject from an infectious disease perspective, and standard books on infection surveillance and control, which tend to slant more towards microbiology and practical measures than towards analytical epidemiology. Divided into two parts, the first covers the tools of epidemiology much like other textbooks, but always from an infectious disease perspective. The second covers the role of contact pattern from an assessment angle, and uses the tools learnt to illustrate the study of fundamental infectious disease concepts, such has infectivity, incubation periods, seroepidemiology and immunity. This detailed theoretical epidemiology textbook is clearly set out, with an expanded chapter on practical statistical methods, and a new chapter on descriptive epidemiology. Key features include new clinical examples and infectious disease problems of recent interest, such as tuberculosis and vCJD. All students of epidemiology, infectious disease medicine, and microbiology will find this an invaluable guide.
