Toxicology and Risk Assessment

edited by Anna M. Fan, Elaine M. Khan and George V. Alexeeff

This a well-written and curated general reference book on toxicology and risk assessment. The contributing chapter authors are knowledgeable and bring a diverse set of perspectives to this problem area. There are authors from state, federal, and national agencies in other countries so there is a comprehensive set of perspectives on the various topics presented. The book is also forward looking with regard to addressing important emerging topics in toxicology such as nanomaterials and risk assessment topics such as sensitive subpopulations. The discussion in the chapters dealing with these nanomaterials and sensitive subpopulations such as the aged is particularly timely and informative in this regard. Overall this is a comprehensive and useful contribution to the review literature concerning toxicology and risk assessment that should find readership in academia, industry, and government/international agencies.
