Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume reviews the evidence critically appraised by a Working Group of 17 scientists from nine countries and draws conclusions about the effectiveness of smoke-free policies. The volume covers the evolution of smoke-free policies, impact of smoke-free policies on businesses in the hospitality sector, public attitudes towards smoke-free policies and compliance, reductions in exposure to secondhand smoke and effects on health due to restrictions on smoking following policy implementation, effects of mandated smoking restrictions on smoking behavior, and the effects of voluntary home smoking restrictions on exposure to secondhand smoke and smoking behavior. This handbook will be useful for health professionals and policymakers in countries who are currently considering legislation to protect the population from tobacco.

Book News Annotation:

A team of researchers in cancer prevention, epidemiology, and related fields critically review evidence on the economic effects and health benefits of smoke-free legislation and voluntary smoke-free policies in households in order to eliminate disease caused by second-hand smoke. They consider the health effects of exposure to second-hand smoke; the evolution of smoke-free policies; the impact of such policies on businesses and the hospitality sector, public attitudes and compliance, reductions in exposure, the effect of mandated restrictions on smoking behavior, and home smoking restrictions.
