This is unquestionably the most comprehensive and user-friendly bibliography of environmental sources published to date. The preface clearly describes the scope and purpose and explains the inclusion or exclusion of certain types of resources. The work itself is organized into 39 chapters covering topics such as animal rights, water supply, energy, wetlands, and food supply. Each chapter begins with a helpful ``Short List of Sources for General Research'' for those seeking nontechnical information. This list is followed by ``Introductory Sources,'' which gives an overview of the topic; the rest of the chapter is devoted to specialized subtopics. For example, the chapter on recycling is broken down into such subtopics as ``oil,'' ``plastics,'' ``tires,'' and ``beverage containers.'' Within each subtopic, sources are clearly arranged into annotated and unannotated books (including LC call numbers), annotated and unannotated general and professional journals, conference proceedings, bibliographies, videos, and books for young adults. Coverage consists mostly of sources from the 1980s, but the editors have added some standard older titles. The index includes 50 pages of keyword terms. Smaller libraries that own Island Press Bibliography of Environmental Literature ( LJ 9/15/93) may not have a need for this work, but academic libraries should own this excellent set. It is indispensable for collection development as well as reference.-- Eva Lautemann, DeKalb Coll. Lib., Clarkston, Ga.
