In this definitive book, D. R. Cox gives a comprehensive and balanced appraisal of statistical inference. He develops the key concepts, describing and comparing the main ideas and controversies over foundational issues that have been keenly argued for more than two-hundred years. Continuing a sixty-year career of major contributions to statistical thought, one is better placed to give this much-needed account of the field. An appendix gives a more personal assessment of the merits of different ideas. The content ranges from the traditional to the contemporary. While specific applications are t treated, the book is strongly motivated by applications across the sciences and associated techlogies. The mathematics is kept as elementary as feasible, though previous kwledge of statistics is assumed. The book will be valued by every user or student of statistics who is serious about understanding the uncertainty inherent in conclusions from statistical analyses.
D. R. Cox is one of the world's preeminent statisticians. Author or co-author of sixteen books and roughly 250 papers, his work on the proportional hazards regression model is one of the most-cited and most influential papers in modern statistics.
