About this book

In 1962 the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring sparked widespread public debate on the issue of pesticide abuse and environmental degradation. Priscilla Coit Murphy explores the importance of the book for the author, her editors and publishers, her detractors, the media, and the public at large.
