Reviews

"A superb collection of well-written, well-organized, and authoritative chapters that are as up to date as possible. Almost every chapter is outstanding and some are classics in their own right. The authors represent a who's who of experts on modern tropical infectious diseases." – The New England Journal of Medicine, review of the 2nd Edition

"This is the third edition of an excellent, edited, comprehensive book that presents the scientific basis for the current understanding of tropical infectious diseases. This book succeeds in its effort to be the definitive work on the newest concepts in the field as well as a practical guide to clinical management of tropical infectious diseases. The addition of new topics, such as vaccines and new pathogens, make this update a worthwhile addition to one's library."

— Winnie Ooi, MD, MPH, DMD, Harvard Medical School
