In recent years, zoonoses and communicable diseases common to man and animals have gained increasing attention worldwide. Human diseases that have their origins in infected animals, such as AIDS or Creutzfeldt-Jakob, have highlighted the need for a better understanding of animal diseases. The ease and speed of modern travel facilitates the spread of diseases once confined to specific geographic areas, as recently occurred with the widely publicized severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) epidemic. Animal migration and trade pose a similar threat, as was shown by the outbreaks in the United States of West Nile fever, and most recently, monkeypox—two diseases not previously known in the Western Hemisphere. Each of these examples highlights the need for accurate, up-to-date information, such as that presented in the latest edition of Zoonoses and Communicable Diseases Common to Man and Animals.
This series provides a detailed overview of the most important historic and emerging zoonotic diseases, such as Ebola hemorrhagic fever, foot-and-mouth disease, influenza, giardiasis, Japanese encephalitis, shigellosis, and spongiform encephalopathies, with information ranging from their first appearance and most important outbreaks to the latest scientific knowledge of the diseases and their causative agents.
The chapters provide the following key information on each disease:
Numerous tables and figures diagramming modes of transmission complement the text.
Aetiology Geographic distribution Symptoms and occurrence in man and animals Source of infection and mode of transmission Role of animals in its epidemiology Diagnostic techniques, and Prevention and control measures
The volumes are all very clearly organised and information on each zoonotic agent is well-structured. Each topic is dealt with very succinctly - probably too succinctly for microbiologists who specialise in a particular microorganism - but a good reference list is given for each organism for those who require more in-depth information.
The authors must be congratulated on undertaking such a huge task and making these quick reference manuals so easy and clear to use.
