Published by Wiley
“… a fun and readable book that engages theimagination and retains the interest of the clinically orientedreader while conveying an understanding of the direct implicationsof molecular characteristics of infectious agents to the practiceof medicine..” –Emerging Infectious Diseases,January 2010

“… provides a valuable overview of the basicprinciples and issues pertaining to the pathogenesis and preventionof infectious diseases. The illustrations, the chapter summarieswith relevant information, and the case studies are allparticularly useful for the targeted readers. The book is welldesigned and manages to convey the general concepts of the variousaspects of infectious diseases without overwhelming the reader withtoo much information… recommended for students, trainees, orphysicians who desire a well-illustrated textbook that is easy toread and that addresses the basic aspects of infectiousdisease.” –Clinical Infectious Diseases, 2010


The study of infectious diseases has undergone major changes sinceits infancy when it was largely a documentation of epidemics. Ithas now evolved into a dynamic phenomenon involving the ecology ofthe infectious agent, pathogenesis in the host, reservoirs andvetors, as well as the complex mechanisms concerned in the spreadof infection and the extent to which this spread occurs. Rapidglobalization has led to unprecedented interest in infectiousdiseases worldwide and their effect on complex population dynamicsincluding migration, famine, fire, war, and terrorism. It is nowessential for public health officials to understand the basicscience behind infectious disease and, likewise, students studyingID must have a broader understanding of the implications ofinfectious disease in a public health context as well as clinicalpresentation and prevention. The clear demand for an integratedapproach has led to the publication of this text.
