The Chemical Scythe is the first book in a projected series to be published by Plenum Press in association with the International Disaster Institute.
The accident at Seveso in 1976 alerted the world to an imperfectly unÂ derstood but immensely alarming environmental hazard.
Hay's book is an authoritative account of the chemistry and proven and potential effects of dioxins, and of the impliÂ cations for safety planning.
Hay's investigation into the nature and effects of dioxins heralds the new series.

He concludes with a cautious, yet optimistic note-that indeed we can learn to live with such hazards, providing that we are prepared to understand and plan for the unexpected.
The aim of the series, Disaster Research in Practice, is to provide scientific and readable accounts on the most urgent areas of disaster research.
And yet it is only through the painstaking research exemplified in this book that it will eventually be posÂ sible to promote the vital accountability on the part of industrialists and governments.
It is fitting, therefore, that Dr.
