Tee L. Guidotti. Health and sustainability: An introduction

Tee L. Guidotti. Health and sustainability: An introduction Guidotti’s book, Health and sustainability: an introduction, undertakes the tall task of distilling the interconnections between sustainable progress and human health into a usable framework for those interested in the generation of actionable science. At the core, Guidotti is interested in how to reconcile conflicts between economic development and environmental health protection, suggesting that progress might be shaped by embracing current cultural values, rather than posting that such values have to be abandoned to ensure a sustainable future. While pragmatic, he is optimistic and tangible when he makes the case for achieving sustainability by embracing modern cultural values. The author successfully tackles a wide range of interrelated topics at an appropriate depth for a generalist reader and for aspiring professionals in health or environmental fields. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences Springer Journals

Abstract

Guidotti’s book, Health and sustainability: an introduction, undertakes the tall task of distilling the interconnections between sustainable progress and human health into a usable framework for those interested in the generation of actionable science. At the core, Guidotti is interested in how to reconcile conflicts between economic development and environmental health protection, suggesting that progress might be shaped by embracing current cultural values, rather than posting that such values have to be abandoned to ensure a sustainable future. While pragmatic, he is optimistic and tangible when he makes the case for achieving sustainability by embracing modern cultural values. The author successfully tackles a wide range of interrelated topics at an appropriate depth for a generalist reader and for aspiring professionals in health or environmental fields.
