Book News Annotation:

This is an introductory textbook aimed at the undergraduate or graduate student new to the study of epidemiology. Aschengrau (epidemiology, Boston U.) and Seage (epidemiology, Harvard U.) provide a broad overview in the first five chapters, followed by more detailed looks at bias, confounding, effect measure modification, and random error. The book emphasizes study design, and looks specifically at each of the three main analytic designs: experimental, cohort, and case-control studies. New for the second edition are a chapter on ethical issues in human research, as well as updated examples and review questions. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
