Editorial Reviews

Review


"War and Public Health offers a comprehensive and valuable review of the adverse effects of violent political conflict on health and human systems."--British Medical Journal


From reviews of the previous edition:


"It is axiomatic that war involves killing. But war also leaves wounds, infections, and suffering lingering for years, poisoning relationships, psyches, soils, forests, and underground water systems. War and Public Health addresses all these issues in a handsomely crafted text, replete with photographs, tables, and charts, and delivers an overwhelming indictment of war and its devastating impact on populations and public health...War and Public Health is concisely organized, comprehensively referenced, and conveviently indexed. It is important for health professionals, policymakers, and those in international organizations."--Journal of the American Medical Association


"War and Public Health is a sourcebook for those who wish to study this compelling problem...The book presents plenty of information about the effects of war on public health...War and peace remain among humankind's compelling mysteries, deeply worthy of the fine study and work presented in this important book."--New England Journal of Medicine


"This book serves a critically important role by raising our awareness of war as a public health problem that is amenable to public health solutions. There are no comparable books on the market. The scope is vast, with each chapter presenting an in-depth analysis of one aspect of war."--Doody's


"...it serves as a practical guide for creating a world where war is an anachronism and health is a human right." --Foreign Policy In Focus
