Volume I of Chlorinated Insecticides considered the technology of these compounds in a historical context, tracing their development up to the resent time. The accounts of the numerous applications in insect control given there provide a link with Volume II in that they pose many questions about the interactions of these compounds with living organisms. Some of these questions will be examined in the Subsequent Chapters of this book.
