Urban Health: Readings in the Social, Built, and Physical Environments of U.S. Cities
By Patricia Hynes and Russell Lopez
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.
