This is a core text of tropical medicine with an emphasis on the practical aspects of problem-solving in the tropics. It is a practical companion for the increasing number of medical students and junior doctors who have the opportunity to practice medicine in the tropics. This edition includes more case histories and self assessment questions that put the subject into a clinical, problem-based context. For many, the limited laboratory backup and choice of effective treatments places a greater burden on their clinical common sense than might otherwise be the case. This book tells you what the effective doctor would do when confronted by an ill patient. It presents a concise account of the conditions that cause serious tropical disease and concentrates on those conditions that are treatable.

Lecture Notes on Tropical Medicine is a core text with an emphasis on the clinical aspects of problem-solving in the tropics. This new, revised edition includes a more global and syndromic approach to tropical medicine. Section A covers clinical presentations according to body systems and syndromic approaches, so that the reader can go straight to the relevant section for clues to the likely diagnosis. Section B gives core knowledge & clinical advice on the major tropical infections such as malaria and leprosy. The final section covers other serious tropical diseases, grouped by main body system of presentation, which includes cholera, hepatitis and scabies amongst others. Additionally, this edition includes new chapters that broaden the traditional scope of ‘tropical medicine’. These include a chapter on HIV & Aids which reflects the impact that these have had on the tropics, a chapter on non-communicable diseases and their management, as well as a new chapter on refugee health that covers humanitarian emergencies, control of epidemics as well as health assessment of asylum seekers. As always, carefully selected colour plates and an increased number of illustrations, effectively portray clinical conditions. This fifth edition of Lecture Notes on Tropical Medicine is a very practical companion for the increasing number of medical students and junior doctors who have the opportunity to practice medicine in the tropics. It is also a key resource for clinicians who see patients with `tropical' disorders.

Europa ist mit der größten Migrationsbewegung seit dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs konfrontiert – und niemand hat intensiver über diese Krise berichtet als Patrick Kingsley. Der erst 26 Jahre alte Reporter des "Guardian" hat 2015 drei Kontinente und 17 Länder bereist, Hunderte von Migranten getroffen und mit ihnen die Fluchtrouten durch Wüsten, über Berge und Meere zurückgelegt. Dieses Buch erzählt ihre Geschichte. Patrick Kingsley legt ein hohes Tempo vor. Er reist mit dem Syrer Hashem al-Souki auf dem Zug, trinkt selbstgebrannten (und verbotenen) Schnaps mit dem libyschen Menschenschmuggler Haji, der einmal Jurastudent war, marschiert mit Fattemah Abu al-Rouse, der schwangeren syrischen Lehrerin, die Angst hat, ihr Kind zu verlieren, durch die Wildnis des Balkans, ist an Bord eines Bootes im Mittelmeer. Er schildert, wie das Multi-Millionen-Dollar-Geschäft mit dem Menschenhandel in Libyen, der Türkei und Ägypten organisiert wird. Er zeigt, wie lokale Kaufleute und korrupte Politiker in Italien vom Elend der Menschen profitieren. Er beschreibt die Fluchtrouten, hinterfragt die Ursachen der Krise und die Gründe für die bedrückende Reaktion so vieler Europäer. "Die neue Odyssee" ist ein großartiges Buch, das niemand so leicht vergisst, der es gelesen hat.

Richard Prestons populärwissenschaftlicher Tatsachen-Thriller liest sich spannender als jeder Horror-Roman. Preston berichtet darin über die ersten Infektionen mit dem Ebola-Virus vor über vierzig Jahren. Sein Tatsachenthriller von 1998 ist immer noch hochaktuell, wie die schreckliche Ebola-Epidemie in Zentralafrika gerade zeigt. Ebola gehört zu den gefährlichsten Killerviren. Diese aus dem Afrikanischen Regenwald stammenden sogenannten „Filoviren“, können einen Menschen auf grausamste Art und Weise töten. Das Virus löst innerhalb weniger Tage die inneren Organe auf, und der Erkrankte verblutet von innen. Das Virus ist zudem extrem ansteckend, und weltweit gibt es immer noch kein wirksames Heilmittel dagegen. Deshalb ist es nicht auszuschließen, dass die Menschheit eines Tages einer Seuche wie Ebola erliegen könnte. Preston schildert, wie der Ebola-Erreger über Affen, die für medizinische Versuche importiert wurden, schließlich nach Amerika kommt. In einem kleinen Labor in Reston, USA, verbreitet er Angst und Schrecken. Als sich die Seuche unter den im Quarantänelager zusammengepferchten Affen ausbreitet, rufen die Betreiber der Anlage die Gesundheitsbehörden zu Hilfe. Bald müssen die Wissenschaftler feststellen, dass sich das Virus inzwischen nicht nur durch Kontakt, sondern auch durch die Luft verbreiten kann.
