Abstract

This book covers the science and policy issues relevant to one of the major public health disasters of modern times. It pulls together the aetiology and burden of the myriad of tobacco-related diseases with the successes and failures of tobacco control policies. The book looks at lessons learnt to help set health policy for reducing the burden of tobacco-related diseases. It also deals with the international public health policy issues which bear on control of the problem of tobacco use and which vary between continents. New chapters in this edition cover subjects such as market manipulation, the ways in which the tobacco industry recruits and retains smokers, and how product design is manipulated in order to maintain addiction.
