Control of Communicable Diseases Manual, 20th Edition Every chapter updated, and most benefitting from parallel updated by international experts, at both, CDC and WHO, priority has been given to ensuring global relevance. New disease variants have been included and some chapters have been fundamentally reworked. The 20th edition is a timely update to a milestone reference work that ensures the relevance and usefulness to every public health professional around the world. "Since 2008 we have seen an explosion in infectious diseases of international concern. In 2009 we had the H1N1 pandemic. In 2012 a new, highly fatal coronavirus named Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) was first reported out of Saudi Arabia. And as we go to press, an old foe Ebola is creating the largest epidemic of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in human history. All 3 of these cases reinforce the need for health practitioners to have an expert guide in the use of sound infection control practices. This new version of Control of Communicable Diseases Manual (CCDM), the 20th revision of this 96-year-old favorite of the health community, is now available to address these important concerns." From the Forward - Georges C. Benjamin, MD, Executive Director, American Public Health Association

As doctors and biologists have learned, to their dismay, infectious disease is a moving target: new diseases emerge every year, old diseases evolve into new forms, and ecological and socioeconomic upheavals change the transmission pathways by which disease spread. By taking an approach focused on the general evolutionary and ecological dynamics of disease, this Very Short Introduction provides a general conceptual framework for thinking about disease.Ecology and evolution provide the keys to answering the 'where', 'why', 'how', and 'what' questions about any particular infectious disease: where did it come from? How is it transmitted from one person to another, and why are some individuals more susceptible than others? What biochemical, ecological, and evolutionary strategies can be used to combat the disease? Is it more effective to block transmission at the population level, or to block infection at the individual level? Through a seriesof case studies, Benjamin Bolker and Marta L. Wayne introduce the major ideas of infectious disease in a clear and thoughtful way, emphasising the general principles of infection, the management of outbreaks, and the evolutionary and ecological approaches that are now central to much research aboutinfectious disease.ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.
