Publication; 1 edition (March 15, 1999) : Rheumatic Diseases and the Environment is interesting and informative, and it provides information not found in other books. Some sections rely primarily on laboratory data to support a link between environmental agents and disease, but for some rare conditions, no other evidence may be available. Many of the topics covered by this book are also found in rheumatology textbooks, but with a different emphasis. Rheumatology textbooks are written primarily from a clinical perspective, whereas this book highlights the etiologic aspects of environmental exposures. Understandably, because of the book's breadth, not all syndromes and diseases are discussed in depth. Most sections of the book should be of interest to physicians and others who are not experts in the field. This book may be of particular interest to persons involved in the regulatory and legal aspects of environmentally induced disease. Read more Show Less
