State, science and the skies: governmentalities of the British atmosphere

Auteur :
WHITEHEAD, M.

Description :
Focusing exclusively on the United Kingdom, this book weaves together the accounts of 19th-century urban smoke observers, of early 20the-century visitors to clean air exhibitions, and of modern atmospheric scientists in order to reveal why we know certain things about the quality of the air we breathe, and how this knowledge has shaped collective relations with the atmosphere. Using archival materials, this text provides a historical account of the development of the state science of atmospheric pollution. - (HC)
