This handbook on pesticides explains what pesticides really are and what they mean to contemporary society. It is written in a non-technical language and explains much of the jargon surrounding pesticides in a series of comprehensive glossaries. It provides answers to basic questions such as: what are pesticides?, where, why and how are they used, what are the health risks and hazards associated with them?, what legislation and regualtions exist around them? The authors not only document the problems pesticides pose, they show ways of avoiding these problems, outline alternatives to pesticides, and explain the actions which can be taken to confront dangers. The publication of this book coincides with the British Medical Association's study of pesticides. Nigel Dudley has written widel on pollution and conservaton issues. Alistair Hay is author of "The Chemical Scythe" and co-author of "The Threat of Chemical and Biological Weapons". The paperback edition is available to Trade Unions only (ISBN 0-7453-0330-7, #4.95).
