The book is also exceptionally timely and will be of interest to many professionals, students and academics. I am not aware of any other book that covers this important topic. Glenn Laverack brings credibility and kudos having direct experience of health emergencies and seen as a leading academic thinker in health promotion. Dr James Woodall, Reader in Health Promotion, Leeds Beckett University Using specific examples to illustrate broader concepts, this text provides a solid introduction to health promotion in infectious disease outbreaks. Ella Watson-Stryker, Health Promotion Manager, Medecins Sans Frontieres This book is timely given the current humanitarian and development scenarios in which health promoters and development communicators must work. There is a dire need for reference materials for practitioners which expand upon theoretical/scientific concepts and principles and provide practical, straightforward guidance to professionals working in the field. The increasing amount of public health emergencies, e.g. SARS, Ebola, Zika etc. require professionals to increase their preparedness to respond in outbreak or disaster situations and this book becomes a useful tool for needed action. Dr Erma Manoncourt, Vice-President of Membership and Co-Chair Global Working Group on the Social Determinants of Health, IUHPE, Paris, France. Dr. Laverack'sHealth Promotion in Disease Outbreaks and Health Emergencies adds to his portfolio of well-written books in the sphere of public health, and health promotion in particular. In a career spanning more than 25 years-including positions within universities and the World Health Organization-Dr. Laverack is an expert who understands how top-down, fear-based approaches and interventions can undermine the most well-intended responses to outbreaks and major health emergencies. In this new CRC title, he converts that understanding into reader-friendly prose; the content is structuredwell so that the reader is providedwith essential background information early on-from the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion to professional competencies for health promotion, the reader is provided with the contextual information tomove forward through the text. This book is essential reading for any person or organization dedicated to the promotion of human health. For readers interested in global health, it provides a deep understanding of the interconnectivity of life and the sectors (transport, agriculture, housing, education etc.) of society's systems. Dr. Laverack's pedagogical skills allow the reader to appreciate and trust that there is a way forward. Dr Susan L. Prescott, School of Medicine, University of Western Australia,Challenges 2017, 8, 28
