The third edition of this well-respected textbook supports the new editors' aim to provide a greater focus on climate change, environmental influences, and underlying preconditions, as well as critical perspectives on the political economy of health, including health under crisis conditions. It compares well with Essentials of Global Health (Sudbury Jones & Bartlett ) in terms of breadth of coverage and with Understanding Global Health (McGraw-Hill ), in terms of detail. Its readability benefits from plenty of tables, boxes, lists of key questions, and learning points, all uniformly pertinent.
