Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This newly revised edition provides a wealth of information for students and general readers on the very relevant topic of the environment. Articles cover an amazing range of topics - from endangered animal species and air pollution to smog and urban planning. 300 new articles are included, and all of the original essays have been re-evaluated for currency and accuracy. Plus, complimentary online access is provided through Salem Science.

Book News Annotation:

Accessible and useful to a wide audience yet detailed and thorough enough to serve as a starting point for more sophisticated research, this thoughtfully prepared reference was first published in 2000. Editor Allin (Cornell College) has marshaled resources to bring substantial changes and enhancements to this revised edition, adding some 300 new articles (bringing the total to 772) and revising or replacing old articles. Online access is included with purchase. Entries are arranged alphabetically in four volumes. The fourth contains a category index and a subject index as well as appendixes offering information about organizations, a biographical dictionary, US federal laws, US national parks, world national parks and protected areas, time line, glossary, and bibliography). Coverage includes overviews of broad concepts, biographies, events, treaties and legislation, and organizations and movements. Ranging in length from about half a page to several pages, each entry is signed and includes cross references and further reading lists (all updated). Each topic is summarized at its head with a brief description and statement of significance. Line-drawn maps and b&w photos enhance the presentation.
