Product description

Review

Clear and concise - a well-referenced text which integrates theory and practice in a meaningful way. --Lecturer, Glasgow Caledonian University

Excellent book. Very current and well set out. Good activity exercises and case studies. --Lecturer, West Nottinghamshire College

A comprehensive and wide-ranging book that is useful for all public health practitioners. --Lecturer, Oxford Brookes University

This is a useful and timely reference book, published at an important period for an often under-valued subject. One of its two editors, Jill Stewart, senior lecturer at Greenwich University's School of Health and Social Care, is an expert and writer on environmental health and the foreword is by Stephen Battersby, CIEH president. Nine of the book's 23 contributors are chartered EHPs, or CIEH members. Clearly-written and illustrated with well-chosen case studies, the book's 20 themed chapters cover the recent history and organisation of public health, its methodology and some of the problems it addresses. Not surprisingly, environmental health has a prominent role. Medics generally eschew politics but this perspective on public health takes a refreshingly bold stance. For example, Stephen Battersby, in his foreword, regrets that a 'better regulation' agenda has been imposed on environmental health. He calls on practitioners to help reduce inequality and address social injustice. ... For I50 years, EHPs and their predecessors have been intervening in the environment to make it more healthy. And they continue to do so. Chapter 20, written by EHPs Paul Mishkin and Russell Moffat, with Jill Stewart, gives some excellent examples in private housing. It is a tragedy of social policy that so little financial and public resources go into the regeneration of the UK's decrepit housing stock. EHPs, too, as Nargis Kayani says in chapter 19, could have a bigger role in ensuring nutritious, sustainable food for disadvantaged communities. This broad-brush study is a well-considered, skillfully-edited and lucid introduction to a complex, multi-faceted subject. It should become a standard work for students. It is not the authors' fault that the skills of the environmental health profession are spread so thinly. Many students, and practitioners, will be energised by this book and encouraged to try to make a difference. --William Hatchett, Environmental Health News, Issue 01, 15.01.2010
