oa Southern African Journal of Infectious Diseases - Epidemiology : a research manual for South Africa, Rodney Ehrlich and Gina Joubert (eds.) : book review

Volume 30, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 2312-0053



It gives me great pleasure to review the latest edition of this important contribution to the learning of epidemiology in the southern African context. I reviewed the previous edition which was published in 2007 in this same journal, and I now offer my comments on the third edition. The foreword is introduced quite succinctly by Neil Pearce as follows: "Its development reflects not only the development of epidemiology in South Africa, but also its development as a truly global discipline". It has built on the success of the first two editions, and contains relevant new chapters, as well as pertinent South African information. Wide use was made of the earlier editions in introductory courses in research methods and epidemiology, both locally and abroad. I found it easy to read and comprehend, and both useful and enjoyable.
