Urban Sprawl and Public Health
In Urban Sprawl and Public Health, Howard Frumkin, Lawrence Frank, and Richard Jackson, three of the nation's leading public health and urban planning experts explore an intriguing question: How does the physical environment in which we live affect our health? For decades, growth and development in our communities has been of the low-density, automobile-dependent type known as sprawl. The authors examine the direct and indirect impacts of sprawl on human health and well-being, and discuss the prospects for improving public health through alternative approaches to design, land use, and transportation. Urban Sprawl and Public Health offers a comprehensive look at the interface of urban planning, architecture, transportation, community design, and public health. It summarizes the evidence linking adverse health outcomes with sprawling development, and outlines the complex challenges of developing policy that promotes and protects public health. Anyone concerned with issues of public health, urban planning, transportation, architecture, or the environment will want to read Urban Sprawl and Public Health.

Urban Agriculture Europe
Is it possible to turn inner-city horticulture into urban farming that provides solutions for the food requirements of a constantly growing world population and works at the same time as a viable business model?'Urban Agriculture Europe' is the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary publication that addresses urban agriculture in Europe. Apart from well-known examples of food gardening in the midst of metropolises, it also studies activities in smaller towns, agriculture on the urban periphery, as well as experiences in eastern and southern Europe. The contributions analyze various facets of urban agriculture, from economic, spatial, and ecological aspects to questions of business chances, stakeholders’ roles, and policy recommendations. Case studies from Barcelona, Milan, Sofia, Warsaw, Dublin, Lausanne, and Aachen provide a comparative study of European practice. Stakeholder’s statements and a glossary of key words supplement the volume.
