This new edition builds on the critical and commercial success of the first edition, published in 1993, and the second edition, published in 1999. With approximately 150 articles designed to provide accessibility to the widest possible readership, the title will remain a mainstay of the field for years to come. The new edition reflects developments within the field that have taken place since the second edition. These include: new information developed in the areas of both the fundamental and applied aspects of toxicology; considerable increase in the development of fundamental information and its applications, refinement of technical methods, advances in mechanistic toxicology, and greater interest in areas of toxicology previously regarded as of limited scope; and, changing approaches to methodological, interpretative, regulatory, and ethical aspects of basic and applied toxicology.
This is an easy-to-read, well referenced book that will serve as an excellent companion to traditional core pharmaceutics texts. (The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, September 2010) “Overall this is an excellent, comprehensive reference on toxicology and a good backup for a textbook, with abundant, excellent illustrations." (CHOICE, September 2010) "The main merit of this book is as an immense educational resource, primarily for students, covering toxicology in its broadest applications and containing highly specialised material not covered elsewhere. Many chapters are first class reviews written by leading authorities and these will provide advanced subject reviews from which to launch into the primary literature. It has clearly been a massive undertaking which has been completed with commendable commitment and production quality is excellent. It is also a text of few competitors and outstandingly good value, and all things considered must be rated as excellent for quality, novelty, scope and overall contribution to the toxicological literature." (BTS Newsletter, Summer 2010) "There are many wonderfully and masterfully written chapters that relate basic science to its practical applications." (The Annals of Pharmacotherapy - September 2010).
