The editors of this updated edition continue to provide an essential guide to the role of public health in minimizing the consequences of war. It has been revised and updated since the three years it was first published, documenting the impact of war on public health, with the latest discussions on the war in Kosovo, "Africa's First World War" and updates on the conflicts in Sudan and Sierra Leone. It also includes discussions on the human consequences of war, economic sanctions, consequences of nuclear weapons production and testing, chemical and biological weapons, bioterrorism, development of the "Culture of Peace" and more. This updated edition will be a great reference for public health professionals, educators or students of public health or medicine and all those who are involved in international studies, diplomacy or the military.
