Summary:
"The aim of this book is to tell the story of community health action, from its beginnings in the earliest civilizations to the state of development achieved at present in the economically and technologically advanced countries of the world. For this reason, the narrative, especially for the modern period, relates chiefly to those lands which have been the major centers of modern public health--especially Great Britain, France, Germany, and the United States. Where there have been developments of special interest in other countries, reference is made to them. For a variety of reasons, a large part of the world--in Asia, in Africa, in the Middle East--stopped developing economically, politically, and scientifically around 1400, just about the time that the Western nations entered upon a period of extraordinary growth in these areas. As a result, it is only today that the Asian and African peoples are beginning to effect the far-reaching changes necessary to bridge the gap of centuries, and the importance of this development for public health is considered in its implications for the future. The story of community health action is written for a wide range of potential readers and is designed to be read by interested laymen as well as professional health workers"--Preface.
