“This book provides an excellent introduction to health geography. The highly accessible writing style, thoughtful organization of subjects, and helpful illustrations make this an ideal book for an undergraduate course in medical or health geography. Interesting and informative case studies, drawing on historical and current events, help to clarify important concepts. The book covers the breadth of the field and incorporates state-of-the-art scholarship in geography and allied disciplines such as anthropology, epidemiology, public health, and development studies. It is sure to inspire a new generation of students to take informed action on today's pressing public health concerns, locally and globally.” Eric D. Carter, Grinnell College, USA. “This timely and welcome addition to the Geography of Health literature draws together an impressive array of international work to consider the interaction of social, ecological and spatial perspectives in understanding how and why health varies at different geographical levels. Wide ranging and pertinent case studies are used to elucidate the theoretical development of the sub-discipline as well as providing detailed methodological guidance to students with interests in health and the environment. This clearly written tome will appeal not only to scholars of Geography but also to those from Sociology, Public Health, Epidemiology and beyond.” Jamie Pearce, University of Edinburgh, UK.
