Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

"The authors ... continue the pursuit of new knowledge, calculated to bring new fruits of health, safety, and comfort to man and his environs. The charms, as well as the subtle hazards, of the terms conservation, preservation, and ecology need to be crystallized so that the public and their decision-makers practice this complex art with clearer conception and perception than is apparent in recent bitter confrontations."
From the Foreword to the Fourth Edition by Abel Wolman
