Packaging may reveal contents and cannot be hidden.
"This set, weighing in at five volumes, attempts to embrace a multidisciplinary and splintered field. The emphasis is on public health problems: description, detection, evaluation, control, and prevention. This involves toxicology, waste management, water and air quality, pesticides, radiation, noise, and communicable diseases. The 450 articles submitted by over 700 international contributors are alphabetically arranged by title. The articles are classified under 30 subject areas appearing at the beginning of each volume, and the set has an extensive 270-page index. Articles range from 3,000 to over 10,000 words, and many include high-quality graphics and tables. Each article starts with a list of abbreviations; some also have glossaries. Similar articles are cross-reference…. Summing up: Recommended." --CHOICE, December 2011
