Toxic Waste, Leukemia, and Community Action
By Phil Brown and Edwin J. 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

================================
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.
Global Dumping Ground serves not only to expose the problem, but to
correct it." -- Jessica Mitford

Shipping & Handling: $2.00 first book; $0.75 each add'l.

==========================
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. Please write to the address given below to request a proforma
invoice stating if the book is required to be sent by registered airmail
or registered surface mail.

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.
