Tobacco: Science, Policy and Public Health Second Edition comprehensively covers the science and policy issues relevant to one of the major public health disasters of modern times. It pulls together the aetiology and burden of the myriad of tobacco-related diseases with the successes and failures of tobacco control policies. The book looks at lessons learnt to help set health policy for reducing the burden of tobacco-related diseases. It also deals with the international public health policy issues which bear on control of the problem of tobacco use and which vary between continents.
New chapters in this second edition include: Market manipulation: How the tobacco industry recruits and retains smokers; In Their Own Words: An Epoch of Deceit and Deception; Manipulating Product Design to Reinforce Tobacco Addiction; and a new section of the text devoted to 'Tobacco around the world'.
The editors are an international group distinguished in the field of tobacco-related diseases, epidemiology, and tobacco control. The contributors are world experts drawn from the various clinical fields. This major reference text gives a unique overview of one of the major public health problems in both the developed and developing world.
