About this title:
The bestselling environmental health text, with all new coverage of key topics...
Environmental health is a critically important subject that reaches into fields as diverse as communications, technology, regulatory policy, medicine, and law.
This book is a comprehensive introduction to the subject, and a contemporary, authoritative text for students of public health, environmental health, preventive medicine, community health, and environmental studies.
Edited by the former director of the CDC's National Center for Environmental Health and current dean of the School of Public Health at the University of Washington, Environmental Health: From Global to Local provides a multi-faceted view of the topic, and how it affects different regions, populations, and professions. In addition to traditional environmental health topics - air, water, chemical toxins, radiation, pest control - it offers remarkably broad, cross-cutting coverage, including such topics as building design, urban and regional planning, energy, transportation, disaster preparedness and response, climate change, and environmental psychology.
This new third edition maintains its strong grounding in evidence, and has been revised for greater readability, with new coverage of ecology, sustainability, and vulnerable populations, with integrated coverage of policy issues, and with a more global focus. It is a well-rounded guide that addresses the field’s most pressing concerns, with a practical bent that takes the material beyond theory.
- Explore the cross-discipline manifestations of environmental health
- Understand the global ramifications of population and climate change
- Learn how environmental issues affect health and well-being closer to home
- Discover how different fields incorporate environmental health perspectives
The first law of ecology reminds is that "everything is connected to everything else". Each piece of the system affects the whole, and the whole must sustain us all for the long term. Environmental Health: From Global to Local lays out the facts, makes the connections, and demonstrates the importance of these crucial issues to human health and well-being, both on a global scale, and in our homes, workplaces, and neighbourhoods.
