While there are hundreds of books available on many different aspects of asbestos, none contain the encyclopedic, comprehensive coverage you will find here. Edited by leading authorities, with contributions from specialists and leaders in their respective fields, Asbestos: Risk Assessment, Epidemiology, and Health Effects provides a cross-disciplinary approach and an authoritative review of asbestos research. The breadth and depth of coverage spans history, pathology, epidemiology, as well as sampling, analysis, and regulatory issues. Following the path of asbestos from its natural sources to its effects at the cell, organism, and population levels, the volume covers testing methods, types of exposure, and the associated health effects. It provides a multi-disciplinary look at sampling methods, analysis, pathology, and regulations. The book explores differences in the detection levels achieved with various techniques applied to the various types of environmental and human samples. This includes comparisons of recommended and/or required sampling schemes and the parameters associated with the instruments used in each of the methods. Offering state-of-the-art data on asbestos exposure and the resultant development of disease, the content is styled so that the depth of coverage is sufficient for specialists and researchers but also useful for anyone having to deal with asbestos-related problems.

This is a very thorough, up to date book on all the issues surrounding asbestos related disease at both individual and public health levels. It is balanced, factual and useful. It will be of great assistance to undergraduate and post graduate students and those involved in asbestos litigation. It makes a plea for more and better teaching of occupational and environmental medicine and public is packed with US based environmental control legislation but the book as a whole is international in focus.
The second article is very important.
