Silent Spring

by Rachel Carson - £9.99  Penguin Books (2000)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141184944 | ISBN 10: 0141184949

Now recognized as one of the most influential books of the twentieth century, 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.
