Widely adopted, this text uses concrete cases and the author's personal research experience to present competing theoretical perspectives in a balanced fashion, highlighting points of conflict and convergence. An extensive glossary facilitates student learning of concepts and terms, while a list of suggested readings at the end of each chapter and an extensive bibliography encourage further exploration.Highlights of the new edition NEW Chapter 5, "The Global Petri Dish" discusses emerging/re-emerging infectious diseases (e.g., SARS, tuberculosis) and the threat of bioterrorism encouraging students to think globally about disease in the twenty-first century. NEW text boxes on "testosterone replacement therapy" (Chapter 1), the use of DDT in malaria prevention (Chapter 5), and on Paul Farmer's challenge to the concept of primary health care for poor countries (Chapter 6).
