  Strengthening Environmental Reporting in South Asia: A Handbook on Air, Water and Land Pollution……….2007  
   The media is a key source of information to the public about environment. The environment stories are complex. In addition to social and economic consideration s they have political dimensions as well. These also involve a lot of technical data and jargon. The ability to understand the technical information can be a weapon in the armour of a journalist reporting on environmental issues. The grasp of the technical subject matter is also required to show the people the relevance of the issue. It is also helpful when during environmental emergencies the information does not come from the officials. The reporters thus may have to depend upon different people or organizations with different viewpoints. It thus becomes vital for a journalist to be able to evaluate the scientific standing of different viewpoints. This handbook elucidates technical issues related to air , water and land pollution in an unambiguous manner besides providing suggested readings for further learning. With its systematic approach, illustrated presentation and comprehensive coverage, the book would be immensely useful to journalists. Students of mass communication will also find it an invaluable reference. Review >> Purchase: B.R Publishing Corporation, 4737-A/23, Main Ansari Road, Darya Ganj, New Delhi, India 110 002.
