By arguing that place matters in relation to the populations health, Kevin Fitzpatrick and Mark LaGory make a convincing argument about the general unhealthiness of urban environments and thus, of the urban dweller. The authors offer a place-oriented approach to health and cover such topics as: the ecology of everyday urban life- the sociology of health, needs and risks of the socially disadvantaged- needs and risks of children and the elderly in cities- and strategies for better health services in urban environments.
