This book has examined the changing nature of environmental public health in the last 150 years. Until the last quarter of the twentieth century, the agenda had been dominated by concerns about chemical contamination of local environments, about health problems of urbanisation and of persisting threats of infectious disease. In many instances these were the products of industrial and agricultural development, shaped by social and political contexts.
