In the preface to this text, Sanjaya Senanayake quotes the introductory voiceover to the television series “Law and Order” about the connecting roles of the police and district attorneys in criminal law. This analogy is particularly apt for the practice of infectious diseases, and this book, by an infectious diseases physician with experience in public health, attempts to bridge the divide between clinicians and public health practitioners.
