This major reference work is the first comprehensive text to review in detail the data currently available on the epidemiology of the main rheumatic and musco-skeletal diseases. The problems of disease definition and criteria are considered with data on the occurrence of these diseases, both prevalence and incidence, and their variation with age, sex, geographical area, ethnic group, and trends over time. The results of epidemiological investigations,looking at both genetic and environmental risk factors, are considered and the impact of specific diseases of survival is also considered. Covering 15 disease areas from inflammatory joint disease and connective tissue disease to degenerative joint disease and non-articular conditions, such as low back pain and carpel tunnel syndrome, this is the only text available which offers full coverage of the subject with a truly international perspective.

MEDIA REVIEWS
a vast improvement on Lawrence's text ... It is far more user-friendly, easier to read, and each chapter contains invaluable referenced summary tables of published work on its subject ... the book is well referenced and reasonably up to date ... has a good feel about it and is easy to 'dip' into; rheumatologists will also find it an invaluable source of reference for estamates of prevalence of disease and the role of risk factors. I would recommend it for all academic rheumatology units. * T.D. Spector, Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, (Dec) 1994 *
an authoritative volume on the epidemiology of the rheumatic diseases ... a book which makes good reading for all rheumatologists whether their work is mainly in clinical rheumatology or in the research laboratory. One can only be impressed by the immense amount of data incorporated in a relatively small book, by the comprehensive nature of the work, and by the easy style in which it is written ... this volume should be available to every rheumatologist either on his own bookshelf or in the departmental library. * Colin G. Barnes, The Royal London Hospital, Rheumatology in Europe, Vol. 241.1 1995 *
an extremely useful reference book being well written and structured so that it is easy to dip in and extract the relevant information ... It will be useful for those clinicians working in the field of rheumatic diseases and also to epidemiologists and public health doctors researching or reviewing the epidemiology of these diseases. * Elaine Church, International Journal of Epidemiology 24.1, Feb '95 *
