From the reviews:

"Area-wide management of crop pests gained credence in the recent past to the extent it gradually migrated from headline news to established practice. … With over 30 color illustrations and material never previously presented in a single source, the volume stands as a highly useful reference for the global IPM/crop protection community." (IPMnet News, Issue 160, 2008)

"Area-wide pest management is not a new or unfamiliar concept. Mosquito control, as practiced in many areas of the world, is probably the best-known example of area-wide control … . area-wide management has several advantages, most notably effectiveness and economy. … With over 60 separate articles, this volume has something of interest for everyone. … the editors did a wonderful job in editing, and each article reads crisply and concisely. This volume is highly recommended as a valuable reference for anyone interested in pest management." (John L. Capinera, Florida Entomologist, Vol. 91 (2), 2008)

"This volume brings together 66 papers by specialist authors, mostly those presented at the second FAO/IAEA International Conference on area-wide control of insect pests. The papers are arranged in 8 sections. … The book provides an excellent record of the need for very careful planning and research that is needed before attempting an AW-IPM programme and rightly points out that success cannot be taken for granted. … this book provides a useful compendium of current information." (G. A. Matthews, Crop Protection, Vol. 27 (7), 2008)

"Successful area-wide integrated pest management (AW-IPM) programmes require basic research, leading to technology/strategy development, feasibility studies and pilot trials before operationalization at full scale. ... The eight sections of the book discuss the above issues in detail ... . this is an invaluable book for proponents and practitioners of AWIPM programmes and graduate students venturing into this field." (Rajinder Kumar Saini, International Journal of Tropical Insect Science, Vol. 28 (2), 2008)

"This book portrays area-wide integrated pest management (AW-IPM) as a sustainable form of insect pest management and highlights its potential in current and future systems across the world. ... is a quality product, well-produced, with numerous figures and colour images well-used throughout. ... I was impressed with the book. It is a wellintegrated compilation of international contributions that will serve as a useful compendium to scientists, students, and ... to policy makers also." (Olivia Kvedaras, Australian Journal of Entomology, Vol. 47, 2008)
