Summary
This book makes a valuable contribution to the surveillance of resistance to antibiotics. The text offers noteworthy articles grouped under two major categories: monitoring bacterial resistance to antimicrobial drugs, and factors determining the use of antimicrobials. The goal of this work is to increase awareness of the problem, to promote surveillance activities, and to find the best ways to apply preventive measures, so that antibiotics are used judiciously with both humans and animals.
