概要:
Now in a revised and expanded second edition, this essential text surveys the perspectives, methodologies, and theories that geographers use to address the subject of human health and disease. Wide-ranging and international in scope, the volume synthesizes knowledge from across the social, physical, and biological sciences. Chapters present current perspectives on the cultural ecology of disease; landscape epidemiology; developmental change and human health; biometeorology; disease ecology and spatial analysis in developed countries; spatial interaction in disease diffusion; and health care resources, delivery systems, and planning. For this second edition, most of the chapters have been substantially rewritten. Two entirely new chapters address issues in research methodology and techniques of data analysis, as well as GIS. Throughout, clearly presented vignettes demonstrate the use of advanced statistical tools; examine special issues, such as women's health; and discuss Internet resources and other topics of interest. Also featured are a wealth of tables, figures, and maps, including a 4-page full-color insert. Designed for use by students with varying backgrounds and levels of technical knowledge, this is an ideal primary text for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level medical geography courses. Students and scholars of epidemiology, medical sociology, international health policy and planning, and related fields also will find it an indispensable resource. 続きを見る
