520    "The environment that we construct affects both humans and
       our natural world in myriad ways. There is a pressing need
       to create healthy places and to reduce the health threats 
       inherent in places already built. However, there has been 
       little awareness of the adverse effects of what we have 
       constructed-or the positive benefits of well designed 
       built environments. This book provides a far-reaching 
       follow-up to the pathbreaking Urban Sprawl and Public 
       Health, published in 2004. That book sparked a range of 
       inquiries into the connections between constructed 
       environments, particularly cities and suburbs, and the 
       health of residents, especially humans. Since then, 
       numerous studies have extended and refined the book's 
       research and reporting. Making Healthy Places offers a 
       fresh and comprehensive look at this vital subject today. 
       There is no other book with the depth, breadth, vision, 
       and accessibility that this book offers. In addition to 
       being of particular interest to undergraduate and graduate
       students in public health and urban planning, it will be 
       essential reading for public health officials, planners, 
       architects, landscape architects, environmentalists, and 
       all those who care about the design of their communities. 
       Like a well-trained doctor, Making Healthy Places presents
       a diagnosis of-and offers treatment for-problems related 
       to the built environment. Drawing on the latest scientific
       evidence, with contributions from experts in a range of 
       fields, it imparts a wealth of practical information, with
       an emphasis on demonstrated and promising solutions to 
       commonly occurring problems."--|cProvided by publisher.
