Provides discussions onsolid and hazardous wastes, environmental management,andethics topics seldom found in a single text. Discussesthe changing role of technology e.g., "preventive technology" as an alternative to traditional "end-of-pipe" solutions. Considers recent data on thecauses of environmental problems e.g., population and economic growth, energy growth, natural environmental hazards, and environmental disturbances.
