Editorial Reviews

Review

One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 1991

"Rosner and Markowitz have produced a carefully crafted history of the rise and fall of this occupational disease, focusing especially on the political forces behind changing disease definitions.... Deadly Dust comes as a fresh breeze into one of the more stuffy and too often ignored alleys of medical history."--Robert N. Proctor, The Journal of the American Medical Association

"Like all good history, [this book] challenges our basic assumptions about how the world is ordered and offers both factual information and a conceptual framework for rethinking what we `know.'"--Rosemary K. Sokas, The New England Journal of Medicine

"If there is a paradigmatic tale of occupational health--Deadly Dust is it."--James L. Weeks, Science --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I bought this book as a reference book for a term paper. It was very helpful and I gained knowledge on all types of lung diseases that are acquired through working with dusts. Good book for safety professions.
