Description
Easy to obtain and administer, poisons are often hard to detect or trace. They can kill, but they can also smooth wrinkles, calm nerves, create inspiring visions, and cure illnesses. Indeed, says Joel Levy, the history of poison is also the history of medicine, and toxins play a vital role in the histories of science, industry, and agriculture as well. From arsenic and belladonna to thallium and Zyklon B—and from Socrates to Cleopatra, Cesare Borgia to Isaac Newton, and Erwin Rommel to Saddam Hussein—Levy's illustrated history explores the nature of poisons, poisoners, and those who have been poisoned, and reveals how toxins intersect with our everyday lives.
