This volume-packed with mostly new material-empasizes the relation between occupation and a variety of illnesses. These chapters extensively cover the current epidemiologic literature on occupation and provide a valuable basic reference. This interesting work also includes case studies in occupational epidemiology. It discusses the evaluation of individual studies and the integration of information from several studies. Students as well as professionals who wish to integrate an understanding of epidemiology into their professional practice will find this book to be an indispensable resource tool.
