    Book synopsis: The environment is currently a matter of public and academic concern at national and international levels. Often, however, the environment is considered separately from health issues. This book brings together the two arenas, and sets the issues in historical context by including work from environmental and health historians as well as an introduction and conclusion by leading researchers on climate change. Individual chapters discuss the connection between environment and health at different levels, in a range of spheres, times and in various geographical locations. As a whole, the book aims to draw out the implications of the interrelationship between health and environment, ranging from the colonial setting to the domestic home.
