Unhealthy Cities : Poverty, Race, and Place in America, Paperback / softback Book

Unhealthy Cities : Poverty, Race, and Place in America Paperback / softback



The purpose of this book is to show the important role that space and place plays in the health of urban residents, particularly those living in high poverty ghettos.

The book brings together research and writing from a variety of disciplines to demonstrate the health costs of being poor in America's cities.

Both authors are committed to raising awareness of structural factors that promote poverty and injustice in a society that proclaims its commitment to equality of opportunity.

Our health is often dramatically affected by where we live; some parts of the city seem to be designed to make people sick.

The book is intended for students and professionals in urban sociology, medical sociology, public health, and community planning.
