Zoonoses, 2nd Ed

Zoonoses, 2nd EdBook Reviews: Like the first edition of Zoonoses, the second edition is aimed at trained and trainee healthcare professionals. It seeks to provide, in a compact format, an introduction and easily accessible reference for the more commonly encountered zoonotic diseases and some discussion of the issues surrounding zoonoses, and their societal and economic impact. This volume discusses zoonoses not only within the context of domestic disease, but also in the wider world. Healthcare and healthcare problems become more international every day, with the massive increase in numbers of people travelling from place to place for business or pleasure.

This makes it increasingly necessary for us, as healthcare professionals, to widen our horizons, so that the authors can respond appropriately to patient needs. Zoonoses pose a constant challenge to healthcare and our society, and I hope that even dipping into the volume will give readers some awareness of the ways in which these conditions are so important in our history, infrastructure and lives. There is an emphasis on those zoonoses that are considered to be significant, established or emerging in the UK or the USA, and that are likely to present in domestic healthcare settings in the sections on companion and domestic animals. However, for some sections of the volume, conditions or disease states have been included that have a worldwide significance, not only for completeness, but also for information and educational purposes.

Since the first edition, several changes in disease patterns around the world have occurred in the world. The section on bird flu has been revised and expanded, and some other sections have been reduced to reflect diminishing interest. This volume still includes a chapter, designated Pandora’s box (Chapter 6), that aims to dispel some of the mythology surrounding the more emotive and dramatic zoonoses found elsewhere in the world, especially those where media reporting may be too dramatic for more scientific tastes. This also now includes a section on bioterrorism, including the Amerithrax incident in September 2001. I hope that readers will find this second edition as rewarding to read as I found it challenging and interesting to write.
