I found this book very useful in my class, “Environmental and Occupational Health. This was a second hand book that was in very good condition. I was happy with the purchase and it serves me well. Environmental health is a primary concern of many university teaching and research curricula within a variety of academic degree programs that usually include the word “environmental’ such as biology, engineering, ethics, law, management, medicine, planning, politics, and sociology.
Therefore, it is difficult to write a textbook that coherently captures the essence of the methods and applications used in all of these disciplines. In three sections, Basic Environmental Health succeeds in conveying key concepts and methods widely regarded as pillars of environmental-health science–namely, the survey of environmental risk factors, human exposure assessment, and source characterization and mitigation.
A unique feature that is rarely found in older introductory books on environmental health is the section on sustainable development, which includes chapters on urbanization, energy, industry, and global concerns.
Each chapter begins with a set of learning objectives and ends with a set of challenging study questions. Special case studies, definitions, and emerging paradigms are highlighted in accessible boxes throughout the book. Teachers will appreciate the supplementary materials, including a guide with interactive exercises, a chart book, and a set of transparency slides.
