This reference describes the management, control, and prevention of microbial foodborne disease. It analyzes transformations in the epidemiology of foodborne disease from increased transnational food exchange to examinations of new and emerging zoonoses. The authors discuss the prevalence and risk of foodborne disease in developing and industrialized countries. The Annals of Microbiology describes this book as "highly exhaustive, with up to date references." Researchers and practicing pathologists will find this wealth of information vital to continued growth in the field.
