About this book

In 1962, the publication of Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" sparked widespread public debate on the hazards of pesticide abuse for humans and their environment. This work explores how a newsmaking book enabled a single voice of warning to gain the attention of the entire country, and beyond.
