Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Brenda Boardman, who introduces this volume, coined the concept "affordable warmth" (in , 1991), which the British government later set as a goal. The 34 authors of these 20 contributions are multidisciplinary UK experts tackling how to achieve access to housing that maximizes public health while minimizing personal and environmental costs. They present current research on the epidemiological link between housing and winter mortality and illness, tools for research and practice, case studies of inter-agency partnerships, and reform programs (one originating from consultation with post-Soviet Bulgaria). Includes a brief glossary of core terms. Rudge is an architect and teacher; Nicol is a building physicist and researcher at the U. of Oxford. Annotation c.
