  • Access to safe drinking water and sanitation is a basic necessity. However, such access is highly variable around the world and in particular in Africa, Asia and South America.

Compounding the issue of water availability is contamination of water supplies and the lack of wastewater treatment facilities.

  • Environmental health decision making can be a complex undertaking, as there is the need to navigate and find balance among three core elements: science, policy, and the needs of the American public. Much of environmental health decision making started in the 1950s and 1960s and was focused on health effects of simple environmental exposures.

  • I n 1962, a book invited its readers to imagine an American town “where all life seemed to live in harmony with its surroundings . . . The town lay in the midst of a checkerboard of prosperous farms, with fields of grain and hillsides of orchards, where, in spring white clouds of bloom drifted above the green fields. In autumn, oak and maple and birch set up a blaze of color that flamed and flickered across a backdrop of pines.”1

  • In the thousands of English language articles, essays, and books by researchers and practitioners writing about grief following a death, there is little about African American grief (Barrett, 1995). This is not to say that a small number of studies cannot be immensely important. We have benefited from reading the works that are in the literature and that we cite at a number of places in this book, for example, Barrett (1995), Brice (1999), Hines (1986, 1991), Kalish and Reynolds (1981), and Meagher and Bell (1993).

  • This handbook on global economic policy is one in a set of six global policy handbooks. The other five deal with technology, social, political, international, and legal policy. Public policy studies in the past have tended to emphasize domestic policy, rather than cross-national policy. This is especially true of American policy studies which tend to be especially nation-bound. This is also true to some extent of policy studies in France, Russia, China, Brazil, and elsewhere.
