Susser, Mervyn. Causal thinking in the health sciences.
Oxford University Press, WA S Another classic and an excellent introductory text whose forte is the presentation of the historical and philosophical dimensions of epidemiologic thinking about disease etiology. The book is one of the most intellectually stimulating texts, but has less systematic coverage of basic concepts than, for example, Mausner and Bahn. Unfortunately, it is out of print, but is in the library.
Armenian, Haroutune K. Applications of the case-control method. Epidemiologic Reviews ;16 1 A series of review articles addressing historical and future perspectives, selection of cases and controls, statistical analysis, and application of this mainstay of epidemiologic investigation in selected areas of epidemiology. Schlesselman, James J.
Oxford University Press, New York, WA Sx. Presents a systematic coverage of the concepts, methods, and analysis of case-control studies, in a comparable fashion to the coverage of clinical trials in the Friedman, Furberg, and DeMets book see below. Schlesselman includes coverage of related topics, such as measures of risk, comparison of the case-control, cohort, and experimental approaches, and provides extenisve discussion of questions, the matching, sample size, and statistical analysis.
The level and treatment are more advanced than EPID , but much of the material is very readable and relevant, particularly the earlier chapters. The chapters on "Planning and conducting a study" and "Sample size" are excellent, and provide a resource absent from most epidemology texts.
Ibrahim, Michel A. Spitzer Coordinating Associate Editor. The case-control study: consensus and controversy. Pergamon, New York, This book presents the papers and discussion from a conference convened by the Journal of Chronic Diseases now the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology to review concepts, methods, pitfalls, and policies for case-control studies. The book is valuble for gaining an appreciation of the mechanisms of bias in epidemiologic research, problems of study design, execution and interpretation, the application of statistics in epidemiologic research, the development of policy regarding the conduct of research, and the development of this essential research strategy.
Breslow, Norman E. Statistical methods in cancer research. Volume I: The analysis of case-control studies. QZ S This book is Breslow and Day's textbook from the University of Washington.
It is intended for a more advanced course than EPID The first three chapters may be of most interest to EPID students. Volume II: The design and analysis of cohort studies.
This book is a companion volume to the preceding text. Friedman, Lawrence M. Furberg, David L.
Fundamentals of clinical trials. This text is an excellent introduction to understanding and designing clnical trials.
It is very clearly written and systematic, and is a good resource for understanding other aspects of analytic studies, particularly issues in the interpretation of statistical questions.

Clinical epidemiology -- the essentials. WA Fc This textbook is written with a clinical orientation, but contains particularly clear and well-illustrated coverage of many topics of universal concern for epidemiologists. Moreover, since the authors were affiliated with this Department, the terminology and treatment of topics are more similar to those used by the instructors than for many of the other texts. Coverage is systematic and succinct, rather than philosophical and rich in examples.
