Environmental Health and Housing
By Jill Stewart
Routledge – 2001 – 304 pages
Environmental Health and Housing provides both students and professionals with comprehensive coverage of issues relating to both social and private housing. The book includes basic technical information for completing house surveys, detailed yet clear backgrounds to and explanations of applying relevant legislation, and discussion of current policy and strategy. All this is backed up with case studies and examples of how theory and law are put into practice in real situations. The minefield of overlapping legislation and legal issues are clearly presented as flow charts and tables. Unique in its coverage, clearly illustrated and covering such diverse topics as housing defects, caravan sites, asylum seekers and social exclusion, Environmental Health and Housing is an essential purchase for all students and professionals in the housing sector.
