About this book

This multi-volume handbook is an authoritative and comprehensive reference work on major zoonoses of the world. It covers most diseases communicable to humans, as well as those diseases common to both animals and humans. It identifies animal diseases that are host-specific and reviews the effects of various human diseases on animals. The text discusses diseases that remain important public and animal health problems and techniques that can control and prevent them. This edition contains updated chapter introductions, focusing on the major, unconquered and continually emerging infectious diseases in the world; and data on foodborne zoonoses.
