474 welcome addition to the laboratory bookshelves of all concerned with practical methods of detection, estimation, and control of the increasing variety of air pollutants to which an industrial society is subjected. All the usual, and many unusual, gaseous and particulate contaminants are covered, and there are chapters on the evaluation of radioactive fallout, the analysis of motor vehicle exhaust gases, dust measurement, stack sampling and odour analysis. It is essentially a systematic and concise compilation of principles and current methods, with useful descriptions of modern instrumental methods and devices for continuous monitoring. Though naturally descriptive mainly of American practice, there is frequent mention of British methods of established value, and in many cases instruments are available in this country. The references are adequate for those seeking to pursue a particular subject, and the presentation is attractive and readable. S.G.B. equivalent Waste Treatment, edited Isaac, by Peter C. G. (Eng.), S.M., M.I.C.E., M.I.W.E., M.INST.S.P., F.R.S.H. 477 pp. PERGAMON PRESS LTD. Oxford. London. New York. .0 s . d Paris, 1960. £4 4 [ECB/41b] B.SC. The proceedings of the second symposium on the treatment of waste waters have been edited and arranged in this book by Peter C. G. Isaac, the enthusiastic and energetic senior lecturer in Public Health Engineering in King’s College, Newcastle. The symposium was organized by the University of Durham, which authority gathered together a number of experts in the public health field, probably on such a scale as has never before been attempted, considering that only two aspects of the problem-biological treatment, and disposal of solids-were covered. As a result of the technical contributions and the ensuing discussions, Mr. Isaac has now produced what must rank as probably the most authoritative and up-to-date work of reference covering the two phases of the art, and contained in one cover, currently available. Examples range from the; lavish detail given to the Voorschoten and Noordwijk oxidation ditches, to the ecology of single and alternating-double filtration, the anasrobic treatment of industrial wastes, and through to biological process design. The discussion, which is, of course one of the most important features of any contribution from a technical source or organization, is well covered and rounds off an outstanding publication. J.
