In this second edition of Infectious Diseases and Arthropods, Jerome Goddard summarizes the latest thinking about the biological, entomological, and clinical aspects of the major vector-borne diseases around the world. His book covers mosquito-, tick-, and flea-borne diseases, and a variety of other miscellaneous vector-borne diseases, including Chagas' disease, African sleeping sickness, onchocerciasis, scrub typhus, and louse-borne infections. The author provides for each disease a description of the vector involved, notes on its biology and ecology, distribution maps, and general clinical guidelines for treatment and control. Among the diseases fully discussed are malaria, dengue and yellow fevers, lymphatic filariasis, spotted fevers, ehrlichiosis, lyme disease, tularemia, and plague. Other arthropod-caused or related problems-such as myiasis, imaginary insect or mite infestations, and arthropod stings and bites-are also treated. At a time when vector-borne diseases are spreading ever more widely, Infectious Diseases and Arthropods provides physicians, infectious disease specialists, medical entomologists, and public health officials with an up-to-date, readily accessible, gold-standard reference source.

From the reviews of the second edition: "In this book Jerome Goddard, a medical entomologist, gives a brief summary of many ... conditions and the vectors that transmit them. ... I think this is a useful book ... and I shall use it as a quick reference source when I need to refresh my memory on many of the conditions described. It is also readable and accessible for the non-specialist, potentially suiting clinicians, nurse specialists, and environmental health practitioners." (Ian F. Burgess, Public Health, Vol. 123, September/October, 2009) "Sections dealing with differential diagnosis for some infections, and treatment is dealt with briefly; too briefly to be useful to physicians ... . 'to provide physicians as well as entomologists and other interested parties with a reference on the biological and entomological aspects of infectious diseases'. ... interests of most physicians and entomologists. ... I applaud the original articles as a means of informing a more general audience of physicians and entomologists ... this book meets it objectives as a work of reference." (Harold Townson, Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, Vol. 103, October, 2009)
