Product Description

Public Health Law includes a set of introductory readings, first on the history and scope of public health, then on the basic constitutional principles that define the scope and limits of government power, followed by a series of case studies of specific public health problems. Each case study chapter focuses on one particular set of public health problems and analyzes the legal and political parameters within which these problems can and should be addresses. The chapters are organized in a way that develops themes and highlights recurring issues and paradigms, with the final chapter bringing many of these together in an integrated way. Each chapter includes references to additional and supplemental materials, and provides citations to websites and other sources for updating these materials. The authors also highlight the international dimensions of each of the problem areas covered in the materials.
