Editorial Reviews

Review


"This book does not merely describe international health activities or prescribe technical solutions to particular diseases, but it compels us to better understand the contexts in which health problems emerge and the forces that underlie and propel them. It also discusses the various ways in which governments, organizations, and peoples can work together more effectively to improve health and enable us all to live more fulfilling, productive and, dare I say, happier lives. Herein lies the value of this book. I highly recommend this textbook to students and professionals of international health, as well as to anyone who is interested in the ingredients of human health and well-being in an international context."--From the Foreword by Archbishop Emeritus, Desmond Mpilo Tutu


"Eminently readable, even captivating, this book presents everything needed to understand international health---even how to engage in it. Most important, its political-economy perspective is unique and important in the context of the newly-recognized societal influences on health."--Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH, University Distinguished Professor, The Johns Hopkins University


"The Textbook of International Health is essential reading for anyone working in international health. Written in a fluid and accessible narrative (free of academic baroqueness), this text should become a point of reference not only for academics but for professionals and non-professionals working in the growing area of international health."--Vincent Navarro, MD, PhD, Professor of Health Policy, The Johns Hopkins University, Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Health Services


"The book provides excellent historic insight into international health. Very powerful observations result from the orientation to infrastructure and economics. The content builds upon traditional issues such as environmental to healthcare systems, implementation, and working in international health....The book is an appropriate consideration for an introductory text on international health."--Doody's


"With its all-encompassing view, clear and rich in humanist thinking and social and human commitment, this book is a stimulating contribution to all health and diplomacy professionals engaged in these new and fascinating domains of International Relations that make us more capable of changing the world into a better place to live."--Paulo M. Buss, Center for Global Health, Fiocruz National School of Public Health, Rio de Janeiro, as reviewed in Journal of Public Health Policy


"I found it to be a clear, comprehensive introduction to public health's major concepts... Students praised the text's comprehensive nature: as many noted, it answered most questions they had about specific concepts, and it was extremely useful as a reference. They valued its readability and noted approvingly that it is "written in a way that doesn't talk down to us." They also appreciated the "key questions" and "learning points" in each chapter, which helped them focus on what was most important within the huge amount of information this book presents." --Medical Anthropology Quarterly


"This is a unique book. There is probably no other written work out there available to students and professionals that focuses on health problems prevalent on a global scale, and discusses available solutions... This book has a wealth of data for decision-making committees." -- Biz India

It is a very nice and comprehensive overview of the major topics of interest in the field on International (Global) Health. It also contains references that can complement your knowledge as well as very good appendixes with information about the international organizations where health is a concerning issue. The text has become the reference book for scholars working and teaching about this important and relatively new specialty.
