Following the success of the first two editions, Introduction to Public Health by Mary-Jane Schneider remains a reader and user-friendly textbook that uses an engaging narrative to describe the major concepts, principles and issues affecting public health, including controversies in the practice. Keeping data relevant and up-to-date, it makes public health accessible to a wide range of readers. Some of the key concepts discussed in Introduction to Public Health (ISBN 9780763763817) include the analytical methods, biomedical basis, social and behavioral factors, environmental issues, and the future of public health. Author Mary-Jane Schneider also explains public health's multidisciplinary nature while digging deep into the related political and ethical issues. There are also chapters dedicated to epidemiological investigation and biomedical research, as well as other important analytical and assessment processes involved in the study of public health. The author presents an intriguing analysis of the disastrous Hurricane Katrina turnout, as well as other recent public health risks like the H1N1 Swine Flu, FDA Regulation, etc. Schneider's unique approach also puts focus on public health's economic, social, and governmental implications. Various epidemiological methods are also explained in a conceptual rather than a numerical manner, allowing students to appreciate the topic. This comprehensive reference likewise tackles AIDS and bioterrorism, as well as drug-resistant bacteria. Child health is discussed in detail, as well as diet, exercise, and other behavioral factors like tobacco use. The book also offers a lot of details on various environmental issues like waste handling, cleaner air and water, and food and drug regulation.
