— M. Elaine Auld, MPH, CHES, Chief Executive Officer, Societyfor Public Health Education
"This book is an essential addition to the health practice andresearch literature, concentrating on theories that have not beenextensively covered elsewhere and that have great currency. Itprovides an up-to-date rendition on the interplay amongcontemporary public health concerns, sound public health practice,and the theoretical bases for practice."— Robert M. Goodman,PhD, MPH, Dean and Professor, School of Health, Physical Education,and Recreation, Indiana University
"The authors of Emerging Theories provide vivid descriptions ofthe state of the science in health promotion and presents anexciting map for future research. Understanding and using theoriesis the hallmark of an excellent practitioner. Creating andelaborating theories is the mark of an excellent researcher. Thistext will be very valuable for both."
