A senior undergraduate or first-year graduate level textbook sufficient to support a two-semester or three-quarter course for engineering students. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the field that combines a theoretical framework with the authors' own experience in international environmental consulting. The volume is divided into four parts: fundamentals, current management practices, treatment and disposal methods, and site remediation. The chapters include case studies, example problems, and discussion topics and problems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Comprehensive History and Theory of Waste Handling
This book is not only a good text book but also a good reference book to quickly find important concepts of hazardous waste management. Not only useful to Engineers but also to those who have to prepare talks for civic groups interested in enviromental aspects of hazardous waste management. Knowledge of engineering mathematics beneficial for working problems requiring calculations. Good resource for those desiring to formulate verbal opinions about various subjects in the field.
