Nhan đề: Crime victims : an introduction to victimology / Andrew Karmen Số phân loại : 362.880973 A105; Đặc điểm vật lý: xxx, 445 p. : ill. ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : I believe that this text would work well in a victimology course taught in a social work department, especially at the undergraduate levelÂ…The use of little vignettes to illustrate the text increases interest and helps develop some topics by example. It is well-documented from the point of citationsÂ…All of my favorite authors were represented, and some "classics" with older dates were included, which I consider important .

Nhan đề: Global public goods : international cooperation in the 21st century / Inge Kaul, Isabelle Grunberg, Marc A. Stern Số phân loại : 363 I-311; Đặc điểm vật lý: xxxviii, 546Tr : Minh họa ; 24 cm
Tác giả khác: Isabelle Grunberg; Marc A. Stern
*Tóm tắt : This collection offers a new rationale and framework for international development cooperation. Its main argument is that in actual practice, development cooperation has already moved beyond aid (i.e. assistance to poor countries) and onto issues such as the ozone hole, global climate change, HIV, drug trafficking, and financial volatility. These issues are not poverty-related but instead concern global housekeeping, which helps to ensure an adequate provision of global public goods. Contributors include Amartya Sen, the 1998 Nobel Laureate in Economics, Jeffrey Sachs of the Harvard Institute for International Development, Joseph Stiglitz of the World Bank, and many others .

Nhan đề: HazMat awareness training manual / Paul Melander Số phân loại : 363.17 P111; Đặc điểm vật lý: 183 p. : ill. ; 28 cm
*Tóm tắt : This training manual is part of an innovative training program, developed in conjunction with the North American Transportation Management Institute (NATMI). It utilizes a seminar format that concentrates on all levels of hazardous materials training. Transportation of hazardous materials by the trucking industry is covered in depth, as well as issues of compliance of carrier companies and individual truck drivers with Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. Coverage meets the needs of carriers to provide HazMat refresher training that is required at least once every three years. Issues of safety and security of trucking fleets, including HazMat handling, are also addressed to help ensure that the carrier's safety management team fulfills the task of making sure that truck drivers are trained on the transport of hazardous materials .

Nhan đề: Defending the indefensible : the global asbestos industry and its fight for survival / Jock McCulloch and Geoffrey Tweedale Số phân loại : 363.1791 J419; Đặc điểm vật lý: xii, 325 tr. ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : The book also discusses the problems of asbestos in the environment, compensating victims, and the continued use of asbestos in the developing world. Its global focus shows how asbestos can be seen as a model for many occupational diseases--indeed for a whole range of hazards produced by industrial societies. The book is based on a wealth of documentary material gained from legal discovery, supplemented by evidence from the authors' visits and researches in the US, the UK, Canada, Kazakhstan, Zimbabwe, Australia, Swaziland, and South Africa .

Nhan đề: The poison paradox : chemicals as friends and foes / John Timbrell Số phân loại : 363.1791 J427; Đặc điểm vật lý: xii, 348 p. : ill. ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : In The Poison Paradox, toxicologist John Timbrell explores the dark side of chemistry - how the chemicals that we use and that occur all around us can often be beneficial and yet under other circumstances can become poisons. By examining a variety of cases, from tragic disasters such as Bhopal and Minamata Bay, to the plant fungus which led to the Salem witch trials, and the puffer fish which is at once deadly poisonous and prized as a delicacy, this book explores the science of poisons: the different ways in which they harm us, and how they may be counteracted .

Nhan đề: When food kills : BSE, E. coli, and disaster science / T. Hugh Pennington Số phân loại : 363.192 P204; Đặc điểm vật lý: ix, 226 p. : ill. ; 25 cm
*Tóm tắt : The 'food scare' concept took on new meaning in 1996, which opened with variant CJD emerging as the human form of BSE, and closed with Britain's worst E.coli O157 outbreak in central Scotland. As people died, so did trust in government and science. This book tells the story of these events, what led up to them, and what has happened since. It breaks new ground by dissecting these tragedies alongside catastrophes like Aberfan, Piper Alpha, Chernobyl, and the worst ever railway accidents in Ireland and Britain (Armagh and Quintinshill), as well as classical outbreaks of botulism, typhoid, E.coli O157 and Salmonella food poisoning. Britain's ability to win the Nobel prizes marches with a propensity to have disasters. The book explains why, demonstrating failures in policy making, failures in the application of science and failing inspectorates. A unique feature of this book is its breadth since it covers history, politics, and law as well as science .
