Author: Microbiology Today, October, 2005 “The books do provide a wealth of knowledge in a subject that spans bother medical and veterinarian disciplines”
Author: Parasitology, September 30, 2005 “[…] the publication provides an attractive read—not just for everyone who must or wants to be familiar with the subject, but also for all seeking a broad overview in the world of known emerging zoonoses.”
Author: Australian Mammalogy “These interesting volumes are a useful source of information on human and animal diseases that is often scattered amongst different text books.”
Author: Dr. Stan Fenwick, Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Public Health, School of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences, Division of Health “[..] The increase in our knowledge of zoonoses in this time has been dramatic and has necessitated the original one volume being expanded to three, making it [….] extremely useful as a reference for public health professionals from all disciplines, including medicine, veterinary medicine, biology and rural development.”
Author: M. J. Meredith, Sunflower-Health “The volumes are all very clearly organised and information on each zoonotic agent is well-structured. Each topic is dealt with very succinctly - probably too succinctly for microbiologists who specialise in a particular microorganism - but a good reference list is given for each organism for those who require more in-depth information."
The authors must be congratulated on undertaking such a huge task and making these quick reference manuals so easy and clear to use.”
Author: Rosie Fardo RN, BSN, CIC, Association for proffesionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Education Task Force Team “This series provides the medical professional with a source of information on zoonoses and communicable diseases common in humans and animals. As stated in the first preface, both medical and veterinary aspects,-which have traditionally been dealt with in different texts,-are combined in a single, comprehensive volume.
These books are superb in content, form, and ease of use. Veterinarians, physicians, parasitologists, virologists, biologists and workers in public health and animal health institutions will find this to be an essential and invaluable reference. Infection control professionals would also find this to be useful, especially when investigating outbreaks that are out of the ordinary. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to review these books.”
Author: Society for General Microbiology, United Kingdom “This book brings together information on diagnosis, epidemiology, and control of a wide range of the rarer, generally exotic diseases. This is particularly timely in light of the recent concerns on the use of agents such as anthrax and plague for non-peaceful reasons and the continued displacement of animals and man due to, among other things, conflict and climate change.”
Author: Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA) June, 2004 “This third edition is a phenomenal reference textbook. It is a remarkable compilation of information, equally useful to veterinarians and physicians in North American and around the world. […] this is a reference that belongs on the shelf of every veterinarian and physician. Reasonably priced, it will serve students and practitioners for years to come.”
Author: Vet Human Toxicology 46(2) April, 2004 Kansas State University, Department of Diagnostic Medicine/Pathobiology “Published in three volumes, this newly updated series of important public health information is timely and especially relevant to current concerns. The series provide a detailed overview of the important historic and emerging diseases that threaten human beings and animals throughout the world. Information is provided on the first recognized appearances of the each entity and the significant outbreaks that have lead to the latest scientific knowledge about each disease and causative agent.
These 3 volumes are a vital reference source for all health professionals looking for the most comprehensive information available on these threatening and consistent diseases. If there was ever a need and available response to the public health concerns of this decade, this 3rd edition set provides the knowledge to address those issues.
Healthcare professionals in the basic sciences, public health, and human and veterinary medicine will find this publication series invaluable to recognize and effectively respond to these public health threats”.
Author: Chris Thorns. Veterinary Laboratories Agency, Addlestone Microbiology Today, Vol. 29 “This book provides a very useful and accessible source of reference information on zoonoses and communicable diseases common to man and animals. In particular, it brings together information on diagnosis, epidemiology and control of a wide range of the rarer, generally exotic diseases.
The book is reasonably priced and will be of interest not only to workers in public health, medicine and veterinary medicine, but to those responsible for developing policies to limit the impact of many of these important emerging and zoonotic diseases. I for one will add this edition to my book cupboard.”
