This updated and revised edition delineates the basic concepts and fundamental principles needed to grasp current issues in modern toxicology. In addition, new contributions help to redefine the book's scope and coverage, and illuminate new and emerging areas of toxicologic interest. True to the tradition of previous editions, the current work balances its broad coverage with a basic, fundamental, mechanistic approach to toxicology. The text is organized and presented in a logical progression of general information (general principles) to specific information on organ system toxicology, specific agent toxicology and environmental toxicology.

"This book is now an established classic in the field of toxicology. In the time between the fifth and sixth edition, there have been significant advances in research that warrant this edition. When it comes to completeness, there really is no comparable book on the market. " (Doody's 2001-01-01)
