This book is the first full-length in-depth treatment of settings as a focal point for planning, organizing and implementing health promotion. The concept of 'setting' is fundamental to theory and practice in health promotion. Internationally renowned authors describe the state-of-the-art in the theory and practice of health promotion in settings such as the home, school, workplace, community, and state and offer insightful commentaries on each other's work.
"This comprehensive publication balances theory with practical examples and suggestions for the student, the professional and the policy-maker who are interested in promoting the health of populations... The inclusion of commentary with the essays is a brilliant innovation that encourages the reader to think critically about the topic" -- Canadian Journal of Public Health
