Some brief overview of this book

Rarely does a single book alter the course of history, but Rachel Carsons Silent Spring did exactly that. The outcry that followed its publication in 1962 forced the government to ban DDT and spurred revolutionary changes in the laws affecting our air, land, and water. Carsons book was instrumental in launching the environmental movement. It is without question one of the landmark books of the twentieth century.

This is a rigorous presentation of the effects of pesticide use as well as a call to greater awareness of our environment.

A few words about book author

Rachel Carson (1907-1964) spent most of her professional life as a marine biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. By the late 1950s, she had written three lyrical, popular books about the sea, including the best-selling The Sea Around Us, and had become the most respected science writer in America. She completed Silent Spring against formidable personal odds, and with it shaped a powerful social movement that has altered the course of history.
