u003cpu003ePublic health policy prospectively and retrospectively addresses the consequences of events ranging from the commonplace to the catastrophic. Informing policymakers and stakeholders by enhancing their understanding of complex causation to justify remedial or precautionary actions is a critical science-policy task. In this book, the key aspects of catastrophes (regardless of their nature) and routine events are identified through a common framework for their analyses, and the analyses of the consequences associated with the potential occurrence of these events also are discussed. The book is not about disaster planning; instead, it is focused on analysis and causation in the context of informing – rather than formulating – public health policy. u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eThe author aggregates and fuses scientific information and knowledge in public health policy-science using alternative but complementary methods. The book first focuses on the analysis of catastrophes and commonplace events; the focus then shifts to causal models of multifactorial diseases, particularly at low doses or dose-rates, associated with these events. Topics explored among the chapters include:u003cbru003eu003c/pu003eu003cpu003eu003c/pu003eu003culu003eu003cliu003ePolicy and Legal Aspects of Precautionary Choicesu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eCatastrophes, Disasters, and Calamities: Concepts for Their Assessment u003c/liu003eu003cliu003eUncertainty: Probabilistic and Statistical Aspectsu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eAggregating Judgments to Inform Precautionary Decision-makingu003c/liu003eu003c/ulu003eu003cpu003eu003c/pu003eu003cpu003eThe aim of the book is to show that the analyses of events are fundamentally similar, regardless of whether the concern is a global catastrophe or commonplace. u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eu003ciu003eAnalysis of Catastrophes and Their Public Health Consequencesu003c/iu003e is a text that should engage students, instructors, and researchers in public health, science policy, and preparedness research, as well as serve as a useful resource for policy analysts, practitioners, and risk managers.u003cbru003eu003c/pu003eu003cbru003e
