In the five decades since its first publication, Hunter's Diseases of Occupations has become the pre-eminent text on diseases caused by work, universally recognized as the most authoritative source of information. This new edition contains an up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of occupational diseases as they present in modern, industrialized societies, combined with unrivalled clinical knowledge and experience.
In developing this fully revised and updated 10th edition, the editors have been mindful of the ever-changing nature of work and have organized the text to reflect the realities of the modern workplace. New features include chapters on bioterrorism and the history of occupational medicine, as well as expanded sections on diagnosis and occupational toxicology.
