Healthy Cities - Critical Concepts in Built Environment (Hardback)Jason Corburn (editor)
- We can order this
While the fields of modern city planning and public health emerged together in the nineteenth century to address urban inequities and infectious diseases, they were largely disconnected for much of the twentieth century. In the twenty-first century, planning and public health are reconnecting to address the new health challenges of urbanization and globalization: from racial and ethnic disparities to land-use sprawl, to providing basic services to the millions of urban poor around the world living in informal slum settlements.
Reconnecting the fields of planning and public health to address these and other twenty-first-century urban health challenges is the focus of this new four-volume collection from Routledge. It brings together the very best foundational and cutting-edge research and scholarship.
