For those interested in the environment, and in recent years they have become legion, this compilation of selected writings of Abel Wolman is a necessary reference volume, a veritable Baedeker for the interested tourist traveling through the history of man's efforts to manage his environment. Forty-six years ago, Dr. Wolman read a paper to the American Public Health Association “Values in the Control of the Environment,” a title quite today. Not only is Dr. Wolman a guide to the events of the past half century, he was influential in molding those events. His influence may not be entirely evident from his writings, but those who have heard him speak can understand that the eloquence that framed the force and logic of his argument was persuasive to the large audiences that attended his remarks at national meetings of the wide variety of organizations to which he was invited as well as in the council chambers of cities and at the Congressional hearings where he is still a familiar figure.
