Book News Annotation:

Since publication of the first edition of Friis' (health science, California State U, Long Beach) textbook four years ago, the importance of environmental health has gained increased worldwide attention due to crises and challenges ranging from oil spills to climate change, lead in toys, and pandemic influenza (H1N1). Designed for graduate- and undergraduate-level environmental health courses, the text covers background of the field and "tools of the trade," specific agents of environmental diseases, and applications and domains of environmental health. Updated and revised throughout, the second edition includes a new chapter on injuries, expanded discussion of the history of the field, a case study on H1N1, and coverage of recent environmental controversies, such as use of bisphenol A in plastics. A companion website provides interactive student and instructor resources. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
