ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH

The second edition of Environmental Health: From Global to Local, a comprehensive introductory text, offers an overview of the methodology and paradigms of this burgeoning field, ranging from ecology to epidemiology, from toxicology to environmental psychology, and from genetics to ethics. Expert contributors discuss the major issues in contemporary environmental health: air, water, food safety, occupational health, radiation, chemical and physical hazards, vector control, and injuries. Also emphasizing a wide variety of issues of global interest, the thoroughly revised second edition contains updated information on such timely topics as toxicology, exposure assessment, climate change, population pressure, developing nations and urbanization, energy production, building and community design, solid and hazardous waste, and disaster preparedness. In addition, each chapter of Environmental Health includes learning objectives, key points, and discussion questions.

AOEC Newsletter (Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics)

"With its many examples, clear explanations, and emphasis on big picture themes and relevance, it is an astonishingly interesting read."
Global Public Health

"The book's chapters contain highly pertinent insights and information on environmental issues that go beyond the usual boundaries of classic environmental health."
