Unhealthy Housing by R. Burridge
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The importance of housing and the health of occupiers has been of concern to the architecture, construction, medical, legal and environmental health professions. A wide range of experts are approaching the various risks and dangers inherent in housing design and construction, and often do so without recourse to the advances in knowledge from related professions. A source book of the current progress in different disciplines will be of value to both those engaged in the provision of housing and also as a focus for the direction of future research. The objective of this book is to present an analysis of the research into the health implications of housing and the significance for legal regulation of housing conditions. This is achieved by presenting short papers from key experts in their field, together with an overview which relates the different disciplines to the health of occupiers. Whilst the focus of the research will be primarily UK, to the authors' knowledge no other comprehensive coverage of housing and health currently exists in other countries and it will be of interest in the USA, Europe, Australia and elsewhere since the topic of the relationship between housing and health is international. This is reflected in the international perspective taken by the contributors of this book.
