About this book

This book is designed primarily as a textbook for graduate and postgraduate courses in Medical, Public Health and Veterinary Entomology. Its uniqueness is that its emphasis is on disease as opposed to arthropods. It includes general discussions of epidemiology, transmission, disease control, vector control and disease surveillance. In addition, it contains chapters oriented towards the many specific arthropod-borne diseases. Furthermore, the book discusses the many direct impacts that parasitic insects have on human and animal health. The arthropods themselves are dealt with in two introductory chapters.

Media reviews

This is a very welcome publication that should find awide readership; there are no competing books that cover the subjectsof medical and veterinary entomology so well.'Annals of Tropical Medicine & Parasitology, 95:1 (2001)...it is written in a readable and easily intelligiblelanguage. This is especially important for students for whose mothertongue is not English. In fact this book is one of the best textbooksI have ever read. I have no doubt this book will become the standardtextbook in medical entomology not only in the United States andEnlgish-speaking countries but all over the world.'European Journal of Entomology, 98:150 (2001)This reviewer find Eldridge and Edman's "MedicalEntomology" the most attractive for students in terms of price, quality fo publication, organization and writing style, and thepowerful assemblage of authors (most of the current authorities in thefield of medical entomology in the United States). Other textbookshave their strengths and target audiences. For advanced students, thisis the most complete book currently available.'Journal of Medical Entomology
