From the Publisher"… provides a thorough background to pollution, from global issues to personal pollution in the home … an excellent introduction to the subject, providing the right information to enable students to evaluate environmental problems for themselves."
Environmental Assessment Magazine
"… a clear and well organised US-based text."
" … this book forms a very useful introduction to pollution problems, and would also suit a more general readership, including members of the public with an interest in pollution matters."
Marine Pollution Bulletin
"There is a wealth of statistical information given, and jargon is either studiously avoided or fully explained. … this is a useful 'primer' for students and interested members of the public."
Journal of Biological Education
"Overall this a tour de force which marshals a huge volume of information in its 585 pages; this renders it a valuable teaching aid which is its primary aim and there are few competitors. It contains numerous graphs and diagrams, some photographs, is good on definitions, chapter-by-chapter further reading and internet resources as well as in-chapter questions to prompt enquiry. Any teacher/lecturer of pollution and related issues will find this book an asset."
Antoinette Mannion, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society
"A useful work for introducing concepts of environmental science and pollution management. Recommended." CHOICE
