"The ways in which the great plagues of the past and present have spread around the world remain only partly understood. Peter Haggett's research over the last thirty years has focused on mapping and modelling the paths by which epidemics spread through human communities.

World atlas of epidemic diseases by A. D Cliff( Book )
13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The euphoria about the defeat of epidemics which surrounded the global eradication of smallpox in the 1970s proved short-lived. The advent of AIDS in the following decade, the widening spectrum of other newly-emergent diseases (from Ebola to Hanta virus), and the resurgence of old diseases such as tuberculosis and malaria all suggest that the threat of epidemic diseases remains at an historic high. The World Atlas of Epidemic Diseases provides a timely and scholarly review of over fifty of the most important such diseases at the start of the twenty-first century.<br/><br /><br/><br />This stunningly presented collection of maps, illustrations and commentary offers an authoritative overview of the global distribution of major epidemic diseases on a variety of spatial scales from the local to the global. The Atlas is arranged in an historical sequence, beginning with classic plagues such as the 'Black Death' and cholera and moving on through smallpox and measles to 'modern' diseases such as AIDS and Legionnaires' disease. Over 400 figures are incorporated, including 150 specially drawn maps supported by micrographs of the causative agents, photographs of the disease vectors, historical prints and graphs of changing incidence. The text for each disease includes discussion of its nature and epidemiological features, its origin (where known) and historical impacts, and its global status at the start of the twenty-first century. The book concludes with an informed look towards the future, assessing the probable impacts of major medical advances on life expectancy and the chances of success of programmes for the global eradication of diseases such as polio and measles.<br/><br /><br/><br />The World Atlas of Epidemic Diseases makes a major new contribution to our knowledge of the global burden of disease and is an informative and fascinating reference on the changing distributions of disease. It will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the spread, control and eradication of epidemic disease

Diffusing geography : essays for Peter Haggett ( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Peter Haggett's contribution to geography, in a career which has spanned more than 30 years, has been to retain a notion of the discipline as a whole with its own outlook and methods. This book examines his role in the development of such areas as geographical methodology, locational analysis, medical geography, studies of the Pacific Basin, and geography in higher education, which together reflect his unique overview and ability to further a varied but unified view of geography throughout his work. The essays offer an illuminating multiplicity of approaches, subject matter, and informing preconceptions, yet all in their different ways touch upon and celebrate themes in the life of Peter Haggett himself. This volume will be welcome not only to those already familiar with Peter Haggett's work, but also to those interested in the future of the discipline as a whole
