Summary
"This book has three main goals. The first is to celebrate the work of a great public health figure, the late A.J. (Tony) McMichael (1942-2014). The second is to position contemporary public health issues in an interdisciplinary context and in ways that highlight the interdependency between the environment, human institutions and behaviours; a broad approach championed by Tony. The third is to encourage emerging and future public health leaders to advocate for policies and cultural change to sustain and improve human health, from a foundation of objective scholarship."--Website
