About

Overview

The second edition of the Encyclopedia of Toxicology continues its comprehensive survey of the subject matter. This new edition continues to present entries devoted to key concepts and specific chemicals, as well as increased entries devoted to international organizations and well-known toxic-related incidents such as Love Canal and Chernobyl. Along with the traditional scientifically based entries, new articles focus on the societal implications of toxicological knowledge including environmental crimes, chemical and biological warfare in ancient times, and a history of the U.S. environmental movement.

With more than 1,150 entries, this second edition has been expanded in length, breadth and depth, providing an extensive overview of the many facets of toxicology.
