Book News Annotation:
This volume examines the interface of urban planning, architecture, transportation, community design and public health. Frumkin (environmental and occupational health, Emory U.) and co-authors (a transportation specialist and a state public health officer) summarize the evidence linking adverse health outcomes with sprawling development and discuss the possibilities for improving public health through alternative approaches to design, land use, and transportation.
