One hundred years after Jane Addams published her classic 1895 book Hull House Maps and Papers, another book that could become a classic for urban planning and public health disciplines has been published by Dr. Jason Corbum of Columbia University. His recent book Street Science has received positive reviews as Corbum has sought to "reconnect" or "recouple" the fields of public health and city planning. These fields of study grew into separate professions during the twentieth century. Now, in the twenty-first century, Corbum addresses the realization that "local knowledge" can be a helpful component of good contemporary city planning. just as it was one hundred years ago.
