Praise

“The number of books that have done as much good in the world [as Silent Spring] can be counted on the arms of a starfish.” —Jill Lepore, The New Yorker

Silent Spring, then as now, is a shock. . . . Two hundred pages of letters and talks and short articles fill out the balance of [this Library of America] edition, two hundred bright points of light whose constellation is an image of scientific effort, scientific outreach, science-backed advocacy.”  
—Daegan Miller, Bookforum


“Silent Spring remains five decades after publication, an impressive piece of work—and a deserving candidate for the Library of America series. . . . To read [it] now is in part to understand how we got to where we are.”
— Charles C. Mann, The Wall Street Journal 

“Some say Rachel Carson almost single-handedly launched the modern environmentalist movement with Silent Spring. This Library of America collection brings that groundbreaking work together with her writings to reassert just how influential she was. A vital collection for any environmentalist.”  —Chicago Review of Books
