Health Ecology presents an introduction to examining health from a human ecological perspective. Bringing together a variety of approaches from different perspectives and different locations, the contributors examine the various dimensions of health ecology in a human ecology framework, examining how local, regional and global factors impinge upon the health and environment of individuals, communities and the globe. Experts from human ecology, public health and policy, sociology, anthropology and geography, draw on a range of global examples - spanning Australia, Japan, Spain, Belgium, N. America - to examine issues such as: health in urban and rural areas, child health from an ecological perspective, healthy homes, health within a political context, health and sustainable development, and health promotion and the media. Setting out new foundations for Health Ecology, which aims to create and maintain a sustainable state of health for human beings in a healthy environment, this book offers new challenges to those teaching, studying or developing strategies and policies in health and the environment.
