From the reviews: "This book takes a broad view of urban health, emphasizing urban social factors important to population health. The editors successfully bridge urban health inquiry and public health practice by combining descriptions of issues in urban health, methods used in urban health studies, and examples from practitioners.... Promoting health in cities requires an appreciation of the multiple levels of determinants that shape population health, and this handbook is a good starting point for such appreciation." (Tord Kjellstrom, Visiting Professor of Swedish National Institute of Public Health and Visiting Fellow at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health, Australian National University (Environmental Health Perspectives, January 2006) "Handbook of Urban Health soundly provides the fundamentals on urban health for a wide audience. It will assist health care practitioners in better understanding the strengths and weaknesses of various types of research methods. It is hoped that this book will not sit closed on reference shelves but lie open on desks as it is used to improve the health of all people in our urban world." (Russ Lopez, ScD., MCRP, Journal of the American Medical Association, November 3, 2005) "With its reasonably complete summaries of current knowledge in the area, it is a useful teaching guide and a well-references resource for students, practitioners, and academicians. It covers a remarkably broad range of topics with brief, mostly well-written overviews by academicians and practitioners from across the United States, and it provides an extensive list of references and resources for each topic for readers who want or need more detail." (Howard Spivak, M.D., New England Journal of Medicine, April 20, 2006) "This well-written, well-organized edited volume is a fairly comprehensive handbook on both the research methodology and practice of urban health. ... This is an excellent reference book for anyone working on or studying urban health, policy or planning. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above." (K. H. Jacobsen, CHOICE, March, 2006)
