Summary
"This volume is the first product of the SIPRI/NEP programme on 'Military activities and the human environment'. The programme uses an environmental, rather than a geopolitical approach to the study of warfare and of military activity in general. Professor Arthur H. Westing, an ecologist known for his work on these issues, was joint organizer of a symposium held in Viet Nam which studied the effects of herbicides used in that country. He has edited the papers, written by world authorities on the issues raised by the use of herbicides, and summarizes their conclusions in his introductory chapter. This book is undoubtedly the definitive work on the effects of the use of herbicides in war"--Jacket
