Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763752452, Paperback)New responses to the urban environment have arisen in the late 20th and early 21st centuries; responses that provide grounded and cohesive insights and plans of action to confront social inequality, health disparity, and environmental injustice in U.S. cities. Urban Health is a collection 13 articles that document action from these incisive and dimensioned responses. The authors introduce each set of articles with their own insightful analysis. These critical writings on the social, built, and physical environment offer a paradigm of environment protection that is rooted in civil rights for social and racial equality that considers the environment as the place where people live, work, play, and pray. Articles are written by a diverse group of respected scholars and practitioners. Each section (the social environment; the built environment; the physical environment) is introduced by the authors to give the text a cohesive, unifying framework. Supplementary teaching materials include class projects to give instructors the flexibility of using a project-based course format.
