I have rarely read a professional book that has had more of an impact on me, and it's been years since I found one as engrossing as Corburn's Street Science. This is an amazing volume, and one that should quickly become a classic.(Meredith Minkler, Professor of Health and Social Behavior, School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley)
Like a well-informed and motivated patient, a community that actively investigates local health conditions can contribute greatly to better outcomes. But this is a messy and imprecise process, one that is as much about democracy as it is about wellness. Corburn's rich and insightful book recognizes the value of local knowledge and sharpens our understanding of how community residents and health professional can collaborate effectively to seek a second opinion.(Don Chen, Executive Director, Smart Grown America)
Street Science shows vividly how local knowledge, inquiry, and organizing can extend the reach and refine the focus of established professional expertise. Jason Corburn's environmental and public health cases enrich contemporary planning, action research, and the search for environmental health and justice too.(John Forester, Professor, Department of City and Regional Planning, Cornell University)
Street Science adds an important new dimension to the literature on environmental justice by insightfully and systematically examining how community-based knowledge contributes to scientific inquiry. The book is an invaluable resource to both community activists and professional scientists.(Charles Lee, author, Toxic Wastes and Race in the United States)
