If, like me, you are interested in the link between health & community (eg.
"As a risk factor for death, social isolation is as big a risk factor for
death as smoking.").

Prof Putnam said there were a number of things governments could do,
including looking at town planning. "Suburbanisation is very bad for
connectiveness for example because it increases social isolation," he said.

Here are two weblinks:
