Silent Spring

CARSON, Rachel

Regular price $25.00 Sale

A classic study of pesticides and their effect on the natural environment and humans. Silent Spring was met with fierce opposition by chemical companies, but it spurred a reversal in American pesticide policy, leading to a nationwide ban on DDT for agricultural uses. It also inspired an environmental movement that led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Undoubtedly one of the most important scientific books of all time, written at a level the public can understand.
