WORLD OF CHEMISTRY, 2/ED. 1996. 731 p.

The second edition of World of Chemistry continues in the tradition of the first edition in providing a text for nonscience majors that presents chemistry in its broad cultural, social, and economic context. Since the text covers topics that concern stude nts' everyday lives, updating the chapters to include the most recent information on subjects such as energy, new advances in materials, and environmental issues has been an important part of the revision. The comments of reviewers who have used the first edition have been a valuable resource. Mary E. Castellion, who joined the writing team as contributing editor, played a significant role in planning, writing, and editing the second edition. The end result has culminated in a major revision that both pre serves and expands the fundamentals approach of the first edition - to teach chemical principles within the framework of real-world applications. The topics covered in this book have been selected based on what we and others who have used the first edition have observed to be student interests: Feeling the satisfaction of understanding the cause of natural phenomena. Understanding the scientific bases for making the important personal choices demanded for the use of chemicals and chemical products. Participating on a rational basis in the societal choices that will affect the quality of human life. Helping to preserves and restore the quality of the environment along with a sensible approach to the recycling of natural resources. Developing an insight into the perplexing problem of chemical dependency. Sensing the balance involved in population control, the chemical control of disease, and the ability of the world to produce food. Choosing personal habits in exercise programs and in nutritional selections that are compatible with healthful living. Going places in vehicles that reflect the best uses of the materials used in transportation. Using present energy reserves at a sensible rate, as new energy sources are developed for the long term.
