MEDIA REVIEWS

"Modern society is infused with myriad forms of environmental degradation that pose incalculable risks to the human condition. Hazardous Waste, Industrial Disasters and Environmental Health Risks provides an original synthesis of this rapidly emerging area of interdisciplinary research. Professor Adeola's insights are not only important for all environmental social scientists, but also is a must read for environmentalists, toxicologists, and policy makers throughout the world." - J. Steven Picou, University of South Alabama, USA

"The author thoughtfully presents the key principles involved in the study of disasters and risks, resulting in a resource that is highly accessible, concise, and balanced... This work will appeal to a wide audience ranging from environmental activists to undergraduate students to seasoned scholars." CHOICE
