About this book

Explores how human health increasingly is being seen, researched and contextualised in terms other than traditional epidemiology. After examining the reasons for the dominance of such an approach the text examines the move towards a more strategic, holistic approach that emphasizes the importance of considering the physical and social health of the environment. The links between environment, health and sustainability are then made explicit, including an investigation into the structures that drive sustainable practice.
