This volume continues the tradition of the editors' first volume, "Antibiotic Policies: Theory and Practice", by assembling contributions from experts around the world concerned with responsible antibiotic resistance and fighting resistance. This volume looks at many of the crucial issues of resistance in a clinical context, with an emphasis on MRSA; surely the greatest challenge to our antibiotic and infection control policies that modern health care systems have ever seen. Other fascinating chapters explore the psychology of prescribing, modern management techniques as an adjunct to antibiotic policies, and the less obvious downsides of antibiotic use. Lastly, several chapters from authors living in Mediterranean countries give a perspective from an area of the world with some of the greatest problems in antibiotic use and resistance.
