Dr. Ian Prior is one of New Zealand's most distinguished epidemiologists, whose career encompasses 50 years of research and action. A pioneer in social epidemiology, his work in New Zealand and the Pacific has explored environmental and cultural factors that maintain the health of Pacific populations. In this book, New Zealand and international colleagues pay tribute to Ian Prior's unique contribution to epidemiology and our understanding of health in the Pacific. Ian responds with an outline of his career and guiding principles. The book focuses on health, but also celebrates Ian Prior's commitment to a nuclear-free world, protection of the environment, social justice, and a flourishing creative community.
