Description
Information
Controversial and damning in its evidence, Silent Spring exposed the destruction of wildlife through the widespread use of pesticides. Despite condemnation in the press and heavy-handed attempts by the chemical industry to ban the book, Rachel Carson succeeded in creating a new public awareness of the environment which led to changes in government policy and inspired the modern ecological movement.
'One of the most influential books of the century... one of the wonders of Silent Spring is that, thirty-six years after publication, it retains its freshness.'
