From the Publisher"[It] will become a classic textbook for the dynamic, evolving field of environmental health….The book challenges our conventionally narrow definition of environmental health….thoughtful, well written, well balanced and referenced, and provides an excellent overview of a multifaceted approach to environmental health."
—Dana Headapohl, St. Patrick’s Hospital in Missoula, Montana (AOEC Newsletter (Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics))
"This book is a tour de force — it is really five books combined into one. With its many examples, clear explanations, and emphasis on big picture themes and relevance, it is an astonishingly interesting read….a coherent, timely, and readable book."
—Rose Goldman, Harvard Medical School (Global Public Health 2007;2:316-18)
"The book's 36 chapters contain highly pertinent insights and information on environmental issues that go beyond the usual boundaries of classic environmental health. Among the many excellent chapters are the ones on climate change, ecology, urbanization, environmental justice, developing nations, health care services, energy production, genetics, indoor air pollution, religious issues, clinical services, legal remedies, environmental health policy, and transportation."
—Bernard Goldstein, University of Pittsburgh (Environmental Health Perspectives 2006;114:A672)
