"This book covers 75 main entries and many other definitions, terms and theories. Each main entry provides the reader with a precise definition, a theoretical interpretation and, if appropriate, examples of the practical application. At the end of each entry is a listing of three key texts to provide further sources of information. ... This book takes a new and refreshing approach to the theory and practice of public health. Its pocket-size format makes it a handy sourcebook." (C. Albert Yeung, Journal of Public Health, Vol. 40 (1) March, 2017)
