Editorial Reviews

Booknews
**** The Patty series, famed for its combination of cutting-edge research and practical science, is cited in BCL3. While reflecting the change in industrial hygiene in the 1990s, this revised and expanded Volume 3 also examines the foundations of a discipline that has become indispensable to public health. The first part of the volume, 3A: The Work Environment, examines health surveillance programs in industry; measurement of worker exposure; the emission inventory; occupational exposure limits, pharmacokinetics, and unusual work schedules; and personal protective equipment. It also contains entirely new chapters on interpretations of levels of exposures, the occupational hazards of archaeology, professional liability, and risk analysis in industrial hygiene.
