The book, as is the University of Birmingham Postgraduate course on which it is based, is unique in bringing together material over the whole range of waste management, decommissioning and site remediation. It is essential reading for postgraduate students in this area, regulators, environmentalists and government agencies. It provides a basic understanding of the key principles, methodologies and current best practice. This well presented book contains 25 chapters under 5 broad headings: Fundamentals, Decommissioning, Project and program management, Waste management, and Site environmental remediation. There are numerous tables, figures and illustrations. Highly recommended. I have 2 copies for home and work!
