Editorial Reviews

Booknews
New edition of a two-volume reference that collects information intended to bring new levels of health, safety and comfort to man and his environs, and to crystallize the terms "conservation, preservation and ecology" so that decision makers can practice this complex art with clearer conception and perception than is apparent in recent confrontations. Pfafflin and Ziegler of Polytechnic U. present 76 contributions on various environmental topics, some of which are acid rain; air pollutant effects, instrumentation, meteorology, and sources; discussion of wastewater, gasification, composting, desalination, and disinfection; effects of chemicals and noise; environmental assessments, education, health, law, and planning for new facilities; water flow, chemistry, reuse, and treatment; recycling; management of radioactive and solid waste; marine spillage; industrial hygiene engineering and waste management; legal aspects; indoor air pollution; hazardous gas purging, waste management, and wastes; statistical methods; pollution effects on fish, and from mine drainage; pesticides; and others.
