Über diesen Titel


A collection of entertaining and provocative essays on the culture and history of pollution. Each piece challenges the reader to take a closer look at the current boom in environmental concern. It questions why we decided to saturate our land in pesticides, how a particular panda came to be redesigned to sell the environment as a serious concern and how the whale became a cuddly toy. The book also examines pollution in literature - the famous fogs of Sherlock Holmes and the LA smogs of Raymond Chandler's detective stories. The essays cover the past, present and theorize about what we can look forward to.

About the Author:

Hannah Bradby s research on how ethnicity and racism intervene in the social relations of health has been published in various journals including Social Science and Medicine and Sociological Research Online . She co-edits the journal Ethnicity and Health and is the Sociology of Health and Illness monograph series editor. Hannah has taught both medics and sociologists at the University of Warwick since 2000, employing various representations of health, illness and suffering including written (memoire, letters, reportage, fiction, clinical notes, empirical research) and spoken forms (evidence from clinicians, patients and former patients, in various languages, and sometimes mediated by trained interpreters). She has worked on the core medical school curriculum and special study modules and has collaborated with students to publish books of their own sociological work, both written and photographic. Building on observations by the late Meg Stacey (the first female professor at the University of Warwick) on medical sociology s lack of attention to war as a public health problem Hannah co-edited (with Gillian Hundt) a collection entitled Global Perspectives on War, Gender and Health (2010, Avebury). Medical Sociology: An introduction (2009, Sage) seeks to interpret sociological criticism of medicine and insights into the experience of illness for medical students.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
