UPDATE: Water and Sanitation Related Diseases and Environment

I posted earlier to the edited book by Janine Selendy on water, sanitation, disease and the environment. I’ve since received more information about the book, including a flyer for it here (pdf) and some reviews that can be read here (Word doc). In addition, more information is below on special pricing, freely available chapters and web resources.

Wiley-Blackwell, the publisher, makes the books available at heavily discounted rates (70% or more) for developing countries and for free in emergency health situations. Wiley makes these prices available on the Wiley page at “Request Pricing for Special Sales.”  Here is the book’s link from Wiley: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd

-0470527854.html.

 

Wiley also provides a chance to read an excerpt:

o   ISBN: 978-0-470-52785-6

Updates and additional resources are being posted on a companion website: www.wiley.com/go/selendy/water and on the Horizon Solutions Site: www.solutionssite.org.

Thanks to an unusual permission granted by the publisher Wiley-Blackwell, The Carter Center has posted PDFs of four chapters from the book along with the Wiley flier for the book on its website at http://www.cartercenter.org/news/publications/health/experts.html. The chapters are:
