Entries addressing key concepts, current issues, traditional and emerging research, and major legislation are integrated with historical overviews, biographical sketches, and career information.
More than 575 color photographs and illustrations help tell this interdisciplinary story. Selected glossary definitions, sidebars, cross-references, and a short bibliography accompany each entry. Reference aids in the frontmatter, a comprehensive glossary in the backmatter, and a high-quality cumulative index provide additional tools.
