Readings in the Social, Built, and Physical Environments of U.S. Cities
Urban Health by H. Patricia Hynes
Book DescriptionNew 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. Some draw from the roots of health, housing, and environmental reform; others grow out of new paradigms, most importantly environmental justice. Urban Environmental Health is a collation of analysis and action from these incisive and dimensioned responses. Through a unique framework of environmental justice, the book unifies the core dimensions of the social, built, and natural urban environment. It offers a paradigm of environment protection that is rooted in the civil rights movement for social and racial equality that considers the environment as the place where people live, work, play and pray.
