Through interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives, and with an emphasis on exploring patterns as well as distinct and unique conditions across the globe, this collection examines advanced and cutting-edge theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of the health of urban populations.
Despite the growing interest in global urban health, there are limited resources available that provide an extensive and advanced exploration into the health of urban populations in a transnational context.
This volume offers a high-quality and comprehensive examination of global urban health issues by leading urban health scholars from around the world.
The book brings together a multi-disciplinary perspective on urban health, with chapter contributions emphasizing disciplines in the social sciences, construction sciences and medical sciences.
The co-editors of the collection come from a number of different disciplinary backgrounds that have been at the forefront of urban health research, including public health, epidemiology, geography, city planning and urban design.
The book is intended to be a reference in global urban health for research libraries and faculty collections.
It will also be appropriate as a text for university class adoption in upper-division under-graduate courses and above.
The proposed volume is extensive and offers enough breadth and depth that it can be used for courses emphasizing a U.S., or wider Western perspective, as well as courses on urban health emphasizing a global context.
