This text is a valuable source of information on pesticides, but Part I does not deal significantly with environment. Robert L. Metcalf's chapter on occupies more than half the book and is typically efficient, effective, and understandable. This chapter alone makes purchase worthwhile. The extensive chapter on by T. Roy Fukuto and James J. Sims is accurate, understandable, and well organized. The much shorter chapter on by J. E. Loeffler and J. van Overbeek is highly informative and provides a clear description of the whys, hows, and whats of pesticide metabolism studies. The introduction by editor Robert White-Stevens, overbiased in favor of widespread pesticide usage, does disservice to the more carefully balanced presentations developed in the chapters. The text describes the status of pesticides as of 1966 to 1967, reflecting an overly long publishing lag.
