Product Details

Praise

The Great Lead Pipe Disaster is a fascinating read, one that in exploring the intersections of public health, public policy, science, and economics offers lessons and has implications far beyond the details of lead content in water.—Civil Engineering

A challenging and important contribution to our understanding of one of the great public health problems of the past two centuries—lead and it’s pollution of the environment. Troesken has provided us with new insights, and we should applaud him for it.

American Scientist

Each chapter is wonderfully written in accessible language, and the author is meticulous with attributions and supporting evidence.
