Editorial Reviews


"A thoroughly engaging book. This is a book to be savored, to be picked up, and sampled from time to time."
(Journal of the History of Medicine 2013-04-01)

"Schneider and Lilienfeld have produced a text that captures the enormous breadth of public health over the past century as it expanded its scope from disease and disability to environment and occupational control."
(David K. Rosner Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health 2011-06-01)

"Twentieth-Century Challenges succeeds the first volume in this set. While volume 1 used selected works from individuals who drove the development of public health, volume 2 acknowledges technical advances, social movements, and the economic developments that drove the discipline. Recommended."
(Choice 2012-03-01)

"The editors have assembled a remarkably comprehensive and balanced set of milestone studies and provide insightful introductions to the challenges faced by public health practitioners during the twentieth century."
(Manning Feinleib Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health 2011-06-01)

From the Inside Flap

Published in 2008, the first volume of Public Health focused on issues from the dawn of western civilization through the Progressive era. Volume 2 defines the public health challenges of the twentieth century--this important reference covers not only how the discipline addressed the problems of disease, but how it responded to economic, environmental, occupational, and social factors that impacted public health on a global scale. The volume is enhanced with a detailed chronology of public health events, as well as appendices that contain many of the original documents that ushered public health into the new millennium.

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

I used this book for my public health class, and i must say reading this book has given me so much more knowledge on health and the history of health. I haven't seen a more descriptive book than this. It has demographic reports to show health in different areas of the world and state.
