Bulloch, an industrial chemist and past president of the American Littoral Society, has put together a handbook for laypeople who want to understand and combat estuary, shoreline, and ocean pollution. His slightly technical book briefly describes pollution chemistry and the many federal laws which regulate waste treatment and the dumping of pollutants into rivers and oceans. The conflicting interests of various federal agencies, as well as the Reagan administration's lax enforcement, have undermined wildlife habitat and valuabale recreational and fisheries resources. Included is a glossary, a list of government and private agencies, and a review of pertinent legislation. Public libraries, particularly those located in coastal states and with strong environmental groups, will find this a useful guide.-- Laurie Tynan, Montgomery Cty.-Norristown P.L., Pa.
