The picture of health : environmental sources of disease by Erik P Eckholm( Book )

11 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in English and Spanish and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book deals comprehensively with many of the environmental factors that endanger the attainment and maintenance of health, a condition defined as being a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. The author, taking a qlobal view of community life and culture, environmental factors and economic realities, examines the influences of all of these elements on the health and well-beinq of various populations. The price of undernutrition and poor sanitation and the social policies that permit what amounts to a global scandal are discussed. He also examines the health toll of the affluent diet and life style and the chanqes that must occur if the specter of premature death is to be banished from the industrial world. Examinations of the environmental sources of cancer and the scope of occupationally induced diseases are far-reaching. This book should interest and assist government officials, medical and health practitioners, scientists involved in health issues, and laymen. (Jd)

The dispossessed of the earth : land reform and sustainable development by Erik P Eckholm( Book )

11 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Major arguments and background of the worldwide land reform debate are reviewed. In developing nations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the control of farmland remains a principal key to wealth, status, and power. Rural landless peasants at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder, estimated by the World Bank at more than 600 million people, are unable to meet basic needs such as food, fuel, shelter, education, health care, and family planning. Review of international agricultural output data indicates that the economic case for land reform often rivals the social case for redistributive policies. Not only do grossly skewed land ownership and oppressive tenancy conditions have social consequences, they also result in a system which uses land and capital less efficiently than small family farms. In addition to increased crop output, the economic case for land reform also rests on self-propelled economic development, full employment, and political and economic stability. However, although United Nations officials and diplomats from developing countries realize the contribution that land reform can make to agricultural progress, land reform is generally avoided by political maneuvering. The conclusion is that if developing nations combine land redistribution with population stabilization and intelligent use of foreign capital, they will generate more equitable and efficient land use.
