Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-A solid reference tool. The first section is devoted to defining indoor pollution, its sources, and its effects on health. The bulk of the book focuses on legal issues related to the various pollutants and provides lists of print resources, concerned organizations, and audiovisual materials. Some of these resources may not be readily available, but ample sources for reports are included. Unfamiliar terms, including ways of measurement, are illuminated in the glossary.-Mary B. McCarthy, ACLIN/Colorado State Library Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
Coverage includes pollutant characteristics and factors affecting indoor air quality, health effects of air pollutants, standards, sources, control, and laws and regulations. Like others in the series, this volume contains an overview of the subject under study, a chronology, biographical sketches, facts and data, documents and other primary-source material, a directory of organizations and agencies, annotated lists of print and nonprint resources, and a glossary. Suitable for general readers as a starting point for research. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
