9781573562027: Encyclopedia of Smoking and Tobacco

Here's a comprehensive reference guide that gives readers the entire story about the volatile issue of smoking in North America from the 1600s to the present. This encyclopedia is the ideal source for understanding today's controversies in a historical context. It offers something for everyone, covering social, legal, medical, science, business, and international issues. The A-Z format offers nearly 600 entries (400-800 words each), plus charts, tables, a list of selected topics, and more than 70 photographs. Its chronology starts with Columbus and continues through recent lawsuits. And its appendixes cover a wide range of information, from Surgeon General's reports, to essays by expert contributors, to landmark legal cases regarding workplace issues.

Review:

"This exceptionally comprehensive, objective, and clearly written resource will be helpful to the general public, high-school and college students, and activists....Running heads provide quick access, cross-references lead to other articles, and a number of pertinent illustrations enhances understanding. References are listed after some articles....This volume brings together much useful information and is recommended for high-school, public, and college libraries."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin

"This book would be a very good resource for high school or above. Recommended for any library."-E-Streams

..."Hirschfelder offers much to those interested in smoking and tobacco....many useful tidbits of information about tobacco....All libraries."-Choice

"This well-written and interesting book could be usefully placed in many locations, including libraries, health workers' offices, and educational institutions."-ARBA

"Comprehensive, objective, accurate and written so that it can be understood by high school students, on up through adults."-Pennsylvania School Librarian's Association

"This is a book that you can't imagine you'd need -- until you need it. Nor might you imagine you'd find it intersting, until you pick it up and start browsing."-SRNT Newsletter September 2000

"This volume will satisfy the information needs of many a term paper, discussion group or fact finding mission.... presents all points of view on this topic for which objective fact can be difficult to find....you will not be able to find a shred of bias in this clearly written and well-compiled book."-Community & Junior College Libraries

"The A-Z format allows for easy navigation, as does the complete index....I found the Chronology section especially helpful because it put the surplus of information into an easy-to-read format. Because of its accurate and current information, this encyclopedia would be an excellent research tool, perhaps even a tool to discourage smoking by deglamorizing tobacco's appeal. This book would appeal to non-smokers and smokers alike, from students to health-care professionals."-Book Report
