Contemporary Public Health, updated edition

Principles, Practice, and Policy

During the Civil War, nearly 250,000 Union soldiers died from infectious diseases spread by unsanitary conditions, making it apparent that more soldiers were being killed by disease than by combat. While attempts to create boards of health had been made in the face of epidemics such as yellow fever in the 1790s and cholera in the 1830s, the catastrophic results of the Civil War launched the sanitary movement on a large scale. In 1872, the government created the American Public Health Association, effectively establishing the modern American public health era. Since then, the nation's support of public health efforts has experienced periods of both increase and decline, but the bioterrorist attacks in 2001 renewed interest, highlighting the importance of large scale oversight and regulation.

Public health refers to the management and prevention of disease within a population by promoting healthy behaviors and environments, with the ultimate goal of creating a higher standard of living. In Contemporary Public Health, editor James W. Holsinger and an esteemed group of scholars and practitioners assess the current public health system from a variety of perspectives. Together, they explore the social and ecological determinants of a population's health and the importance of understanding medical needs in marginalized communities. They address emerging issues such as health education in the workforce, the role of community-oriented primary care, and the communication of scientific findings for the overall improvement of the public health system. The contributors also discuss American public health in an international context and illuminate into the potential of public health systems based on multi-level partnerships of government, academic, and non-profit organizations.
Contemporary Public Health will be an essential reader for practitioners, health advocates, and students, providing fresh historical and methodological analyses of a critical and contested issue in American society.
