Review:

"Has the edge on other introductory general soil science texts because it is up to date, comprehensive, isn′t too long, has a wide geographic appeal, and most of all, is based on soil, well understood and well–explained science." Geoderma

"Principles and Practice of Soil Science provides a current and comprehensive introduction to soil science for students in the fields of environmental and agricultural science, ecology, soil and land management, natural resource management and environmental engineering."
Biotechnology, Agronomy, Society and Environment

"This clearly presented fourth edition, liberally illustrated with figures, graphs, tables and colour photographs is well suited to educate a wide audience about soil."
Experimental Agriculture

Third edition:
"The strongest competition is in the introductory textbook area, and as an example of this genre this comprehensive up–to–date text is probably the best around" Alex McBratney – European Journal of Soil Science – Sept 1998
"...the author deserves to be congratulated on the production of the third edition of a well respected and useful book which I am pleased to have on my shelf."
Tom Batey – EJSS – 1998

Second Edition
"The book is an excellent compilation of soil science concepts and principles, skilfully accomplished in 244 page, including a very generous use of figures, graphs and tables within each chapter."
Leon J Johnson – Soil Science Sept 1988


"I will be happy to recommend this new edition, just as I recommended the first, as the preferred text for students taking introductory courses in soil science."
K. A. Smith – New Phytologist – 1987

First Edition
"This clearly written and attractive publication on basic concepts of the properties and behaviour of soils is written for students in soil science as well as for those whose main interest lies in agriculture, forestry, ecology or geography"
Bulletin of International Society of Soil Science – 1980


"In short, it would be difficult to conceive of any initial course of instruction on soils which would not benefit from use of this original and refreshing presentation."
R. T. Smith – Teaching Geography – 1980


"A most useful book for first or second year soil courses in Geography"
D. J. Briggs – Earth Surface Processes – 1981


"In general the choice of material is excellent, covering all major areas of interest"
P.B. Tinker – New Phytologist 1981


"It is very well written and produced with excellent and copious illustrations and suggestions for further reading ... It is an important addition to the literature at this level."
D. Payne – Journal of Biological Education – 1980

"For those teachers, for whom White′s Principles and Practice of Soil Science has been and remains their choice of textbook, this new edition will be most welcome...it is now more international in appeal and teachers anywhere in the world are likely to find it valuable. If you are thinking of changing your teaching text, then I suggest that you give this new edition a close look, it has much to commend it."
European Journal of Soil Science, April 2006

The Fourth Edition of this classic text includes: Fully updated coverage of all the major aspects of soil science, from the soil habitat to processes in the soil environment and management for sustainable production. Discussion of soil management and environmental impacts. Emphasis on the applications of soil science to the solution of practical problems in soil and land management. Real world examples drawn from the author s international experience in the field. A thoroughly updated art package, with new colour photographs and diagrams to help students visualize key concepts. New problem sets at the end of each chapter, designed to reinforce important principles. An answer key is provided at the end of the text. Although designed primarily for students, Principles and Practice of Soil Science, Fourth Edition is also an accessible reference for professional soil scientists, agronomists, ecologists, geomorphologists, engineers and land managers.
