Insanitary City: Hendry Littlejohn and the Condition of EdinburghHardback
This product is available.
Dr Henry Littlejohn's 'Report on the Sanitary Condition of Edinburgh' (1865) was a landmark in urban management and public health administration. 'The Lancet' described it as 'monumental'. The report had a significance far beyond the boundaries of Edinburgh and his meticulous research produced penetrating insights into the links between poverty, employment, and public health in Victorian cities. 'Insanitary City' reproduces the full report and sets it in this wider context.
