Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Niko Keys, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This is a new edition of a major textbook on the basic science of toxicology intended for both students and practitioners. Its emphasis is on mechanisms of toxicity. The last edition was published in 1991.
Purpose: It provides information on the many facets of toxicology, especially on the principles, concepts, and modes of thought that are the foundation of the discipline.
Audience: This book is written for graduate courses in toxicology. In addition, scientists from other disciplines may find relevant sections. This is an accurate target audience, in my opinion.
Features: The illustrations are well done and absolutely necessary. The text is extensively referenced and up-to-date. The book is neat in appearance.
Assessment: This continues to be the premier reference book on the basic science of toxicology. The new edition is a timely update of a very useful book.
