Free eBook, Principles of Tobacco Control

A free eBook, from the School of Public Health at Georgia State University, examines the harm caused by tobacco use and offers solutions for successful tobacco control.

Dr. Michael Eriksen, dean of the School of Public Health, is the senior author of “Principles of Tobacco Control: Extinguishing the Habit,” which explores the history of tobacco as well as today’s urgent issues, from the rapid rise of novel tobacco products such as e-cigarettes to regulations surrounding tobacco use, marketing and other aspects of industry behavior.

The e-book, which is available in iBook format for Mac and iPad users, contains interactive features, including video, graphics and links to additional articles and reports and will be updated periodically. There is also a PDF version for users of PCs and other mobile devices, including iPhones and Android platform tablets and phones.

The book is cataloged in WorldCat; any OCLC member library can import this record into their local system.   Additional cataloging information may be found at the GSU library record.
