Early paperback edition of one of the most noted works on environmental pollutants and how they are negatively impacting and changing our world.
With what is going on in the government today with big polluters, not just in the United States, but worldwide this book is, quite possibly, more relevant than ever.
From the Boston Herald:
"The thing to remember is that the author is not an alarmist but a trained, meticulously scrupulous scientist, who shuns publicity and controversy but whose findings were too catastrophic to keep to herself."
From Saturday Review:
"Silent Spring is a devastating attack on human carelessness, greed and irresponsibility. It should be read by every American who does not want it to be the epitaph of a world not very far beyond us in time."
This paperback contains the complete text that was in the hardcover edition.
