Choice Review

A collection of introductory remarks and plenary lectures given at the Chemical Research Applied to World Needs VII (CHEMRAWN VII) conference held in December 1991. The subject of the conference, perspectives and recommendations regarding the chemistry of the atmosphere and its impact on global change, bridges scientific, technological, economic, and policy issues. The remarks and plenary lectures here collected present the perspectives of scientists, industry, and developing countries regarding the direction the international community should take to protect the global atmosphere. A nonscientific book, of particular use to those interested in obtaining insight into the making of public policy from a multidisciplinary perspective. General; community college; undergraduate; pre-professional; professional.
