Recently occupational health texts have appeared every 2 to 3 years. Environmental and Occupational Medicine, third edition, appeared in 19981 followed by Hunter's Diseases of Occupations, ninth edition, in 2000.2 The pattern continues with A Practical Approach to Occupational and Environmental Medicine, the third edition of another established text, edited by Robert J. McCunney. These textbooks define the specialty of occupational and environmental medicine, although for the busy clinician or inquisitive administrator, they merge into the genre of periodically updated occupational medicine text. The feature distinguishing McCunney's text from the rest is its distinctly clinical approach.
