CHOICE Review

Twenty-four experts, faculty, and graduates from the Department of Maternal and Child Health of the University of North Carolina's School of Public Health at Chapel Hill present comprehensive information related to the broad field of maternal and child health, both academic and service areas. Topics include the historical development of maternal and child health, its philosophical foundations, the roles of federal and state government, children's rights and social justice, changing family structure and roles, developmental stages, adolescent health, minority and women's health, international programs and trends, research and evaluation, and the many US programs that help meet the health care needs of mothers and children. The content is based on the curriculum taught at UNC and provides an in-depth picture of the multiple aspects of maternal and child health, focusing on major changes currently taking place that are directed toward primary prevention of disease and health promotion. Extensive chapter references. Highly recommended for undergraduate and graduate health professionals, demographers, epidemiologists, and practitioners. A. R. Davis; Johns Hopkins University
