Body and City : Histories of Urban Public Health Hardback

Part of the Historical Urban Studies Series series

Description

A provocative survey of new research in the history of urban public health, Body and City links the approaches of demographic and medical history with the methodologies of urban history and historical geography.

It challenges older methodologies, offering new insights into the significance of cultural history, which has largely been overlooked by previous histories of public health.

This book explores important issues and experiences in the public health arena in diverse European settings from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century.
