Summary: Girard/Buell is the first Chemistry and Society text to use an environmental perspective as a vehicle to teach basic scientific literacy, an approach which is both timely and scientifically significant. This student-friendly and applications-rich text is grounded in a solid foundation of basic chemistry which assumes little or no scientific background.

Unique Environmental Perspective within a framework similar to what is currently taught. Integrates envir ...show moreonmental perspective at both the organizational level and as a thematic thread. two unique chapters provide an early orientation to the earth and its ecosystems, establishing an environmental framework to motivate the following study of chemical principles (Ch. 3 & 3)
environmental theme is also integrated throughout: in the chapter opening vignettes, in the main narrative (noted with a globe icon) and in the applications boxes and their accompanying end-of-chapter questions Consumer Briefs investigate the chemistry at work in common drugs and consumer products such as dental fillings, antacids, caffeine and sunscreen.
