“A substantial contribution to the field illustrating how public health and planning policies merged and supported each other after the Industrial Revolution, parted ways in the twentieth century, and have now remerged in tackling contemporary issues of health and the built environment. Carr draws on a myriad of sources, and the work represents sound and thorough scholarship.

I cannot imagine a more perfect post-pandemic book. Public health provides the legal foundations for the architecture, landscape architecture, and planning professions in the United States. As a result, it is essential to understand the role that public health has played in shaping our cities. In The Topography of Wellness, Sara Jensen Carr provides a tour-de-force review and analysis of the checkered history of the contributions that public health and disease have played in designing and planning the American landscape.
