Merchandise Description

Catalog #931


Louis Rowitz (2014)

The importance of leadership in public health has steadily increased over the last 20 years, given the need to strengthen the infrastructure of public health; the events of September 11, 2001; the health reform movement; scientific breakthroughs; the increasing role for primary care programs in the public health agenda; and the increasing deficit at the federal, state, and local levels.


Public Health Leadership: Putting Principles Into Practice has become a standard reference for future and practicing public health leaders. In five parts, it explores the basic theories and principles of leadership and describes how they may be applied in the public health setting. Leadership skills and competencies, as well as methods for measuring and evaluating leaders, are thoroughly covered.


This new third edition is an exhaustive revision that includes extensive coverage of the leadership skills and tools that are critical to managing public health emergencies. The book includes an online access code to the companion Web site. It also offers

  • updated exercises and case studies throughout,
  • a new chapter on building infrastructure,
  • a new chapter on accreditation, and
  • a new chapter on the global public health leader.

738 pages, paperback.
