About this book

The environmental crisis can only be fully understood in the light of the history of the British chemical industry. This book looks critically at the whole development of industrial chemistry in the UK in the context of its effects on the environment. Industrial chemists can take heart from the realization that their predecessors were aware of the problems and often found satisfactory solutions. Industrial chemistry has traditionally been seen as the "great polluter". Without any attempts at "whitewash" this book seeks to put the record straight.
