Mikkelsen "EXCELLENT AND READABLE.... an inspiring lesson for citizens across the country struggling to protect the environment from polluters and unresponsive government officials." -- Senator Edward Kennedy "A gripping account of what can happen to people who come to learn -- all too sharply -- what the costs of our increasingly toxic world can be." -- Kai Erickson $24.95 at bookstores or order 1-800-822-6657 (Visa/MasterCard only) University of California Press [Advert. in The Nation, Nov. 12, 1990 issue] ================================ Global Dumping Ground The International Traffic in Hazardous Waste ================================ ISBN: - The Center for Investigative Reporting's (CIR) first story on the export of hazardous waste broke in The Nation in 1987. Now, three years later, CIR and Bill Moyers bring their complete tale of the shadowy waste trade to the public's attention in this expaned companion volume to the PBS Frontline program. With 30% more material than in the documentary format, Global Dumping Ground presents the authors' full and unprecedented coverage of one of the most important environmental issues of the decade. paper, $11.95 "CIR's reporters have accomplished the ultimate in muckraking by showing how we're mucking up the entire planet with our toxic waste.

Box 27, Cabin John, MD 20818 or Call Toll-Free 1-800-537-9359 [The Nation advert., back cover, Nov 5, 1990 issue] ========================== The Cytochrome P-450 Proteins: Environmental and General Aspects ========================== ISBN: 955-552-029-9 These proteins are components of the "mixed-function oxidases" which are involved in the metabolism of pesticides, pollutants, drugs, steroid hormones etc and whose functioning in adrenal cortex mitochondria are influenced by the dielectric constant.We give relevant information below. The book was first published (in West Germany) in 1979 and subsequently reprinted in 1990. While it needs updating, it still provides a most valuable introduction to the field with its very comprehensive bibliography upto the time of preparation. It can therefore, with citation analysis of earlier articles, also provide the means of identifying more recent publications in the research area of interest. The book has xi + 295 pages and covers earlier work on the biochemistry and biophysics of the proteins. It discusses the roles played by the proteins in the metabolism of a host of important substances such as carcinogens, pesticides, pollutants, drugs of various types, steroid hormones, other steroids etc. Aspects of genetic consideration have also been noted. A role of cytochrome P-450 in the biochemistry and evolution of primitive life forms has been proposed. The book therefore has a place in medical, environmental, agricultural, chemical, biochemical and biophysical libraries, among others. It was favourably reviewed in the specialist journal " Xenobiotica " when it was first published. The book is priced at twenty US dollars (US $20) plus postage and packing.

MAGAZINES =========== ===================== Journal of Industrial Ecology ===================== ISSN: Editors: David Allen, John Ehrenfeld, Reid Lifset (Editor-in-Chief) First Issue: Spring 1997 The MIT Press is pleased to announce the publication of the Journal of Industrial Ecology, an international, multi-disciplinary quarterly designed to foster both understanding and practice in the emerging field of industrial ecology. The Journal will be owned by Yale University, edited at the Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and published by The MIT Press. Premiering with its first issue in spring 1997, Journal of Industrial Ecology is open to and encourages submissions that are interdisciplinary in approach. In addition to more formal academic papers, the journal seeks to provide a forum for continuing exchange of information and opinions through contributions from scholars, environmental managers, policymakers, advocates and others involved in environmental science, management and policy. Topics addressed by the journal include: * material and energy flows studies ("industrial metabolism") * technological change * dematerialization and decarbonization * life cycle planning, design and assessment * design for the environment * extended producer responsibility ("product stewardship") * eco-industrial parks ("industrial symbiosis") * product-oriented environmental policy * eco-efficiency.
