A foundational text in the conservation movement, Rachel Carson's Silent Spring challenged prevailing ideas of the health of the environment by showing that pesticides affected organisms other than their targets, such as humans and birds. The book also accused chemical companies and federal officials of complacency in regulating pesticides. Despite challenges from the chemical industry, the book reversed pesticide policy, leading to a ban on DDT for agricultural use. This compelling volume offers an in-depth analysis of the life, works, and importance of Rachel Carson. Critical essays focus on how the book put human impact at the center of environmental policy, how some felt that Carson exaggerated her claims, and how environmentalism stands in the way of human progress. The book also offers readers contemporary perspectives on environmental disasters.
