Recognizing the crucial importance of socioeconomic analysis to the world's fisheries, this textbook provides a balanced approach to the study of human involvement in fisheries, one that blends the technical and human aspects of fishery economics and management. The book examines the economic structure of fisheries, taking into account biological and technical considerations, and explores interactions with social factors and institutional circumstances.

Grade 4-7-Another entry in the series of science-project compendia that feature three-ring notebooks and card-weight paper. This book takes commonly used demonstrations and activities and makes them accessible to everyone. The projects, which have been adapted for students who are motion and vision impaired, make use of bright colors, larger manipulatives, and texture. Reflecting the contents of a previous publication, Junior Science on File Collection (Facts on File, 1991), the coverage includes an introduction to physical, Earth, and life sciences. Principles of scientific observation, measurement sampling, and model-making are included. The modifications include the use of multicolored gelatin layers to introduce the concepts of faults and folds in Earth science, and making an animal cell with plastic wrap, a strawberry, orange slices, decorating sprinkles, and gelatin. For each experiment, there is an introduction, a list of materials, hints for parents and teachers, and additional activities. There are also charts for recording observations that can easily be enlarged on a copy machine. This resource is a model for all science-experiment books in that it includes not only the activity, but also an explanation of the science behind it. The lists for further reading contain some older titles, but overall this is a fine reference book, especially for schools in which differently abled students are mainstreamed. Public libraries will also find it useful.

Many librarians are acquainted with Science Projects On File, indispensible at science project time. What makes this new resource unique is that familiar projects have been modified so they can be conducted in the same ways by all students, including those with special needs. Modification in some cases means substituting objects that are easier to manipulate. In other cases, it means redesigning experiments so that they become group activities. Instructions are presented simply, and large type is used for the text.

From time to time, the Board reevaluates familiar sources. We last reviewed The World Almanac in 1981, but, with the recent publication of The New York Times Almanac, we decided it was time for an update on this reference standby. We welcome suggestions from our readers on titles that deserve another look.
