Product Description


Gesler brings important insights to our understanding of healing, making innovative connections between different kinds of environments in the process. He highlights the complexity of health, and the importance of understanding how healing takes place in, and is shaped by particular places. Healing Places demonstrates clearly that geographers have an important and original contribution to make in understanding health and wellbeing, both historically and in the present day. Area Healing Places asserts emphatically and eloquently that place matters to health. The case studies provide fascinating evidence that links between healing and place are well grounded in history and are now being reconsidered in hospital design. This book will be important reading for researchers, teachers, and professionals with an interest in health care settings. [It] adds weight to a major shift in contemporary thinking: reassessing the links between place and health. -- Robin A. Kearns, The University of Auckland
