This chapter presents a sociology of community-level health threats. A community-level health threat is an event (such as pollution or infectious disease) that has the potential to harm the health of any resident in that community. This theory described the ways in which communities react in the face of such a threat, using natural gas developing (fracking) in North Texas as a case study.
