This book was part of a set of books comprising the full EIR/EIS/EAS. It is a solid, early work integrating scientific research available on pesticides as of 1979, and organized by experts at the University of California
There were volumes which Google has not listed: for example, each of California's 58 counties had its own volume in the set, including a fold-oout map of the county and text description of its pesticide regulatory programs. For some counties this 'county component' books was 100 pages in length.
Furthermore, there was an important series of monographs published as part of the same set of books in the same EIR, a book each on malathion, endosulfan, toxaphene, methyl bromide, methomyl one other volume in that monograph series. Each monograph was about 70 pages length.
There was a separate executive summary volume, which included recommendations. This book was about 100 pages long.
I read all these books dozens of times in a research project of my own at the time. They were, and still ought to be, classics in describing government regulatory processes for toxics as well as serving as a documentary basis describing the state of the basic science itself during the epoch when the series was published by the State Dept of Food and Ag.
The state reorganized regulatory programs after the books' publication, and none of the volumes currently is available online in 2012
