Robert N. Proctor's Golden Holocaust: Origins of the Cigarette Catastrophe and the Case for Abolition (University of California Press, 2011) is a new addition to our collection (call # 362.29 P76). Starting with the history of the cigarette, and cigarette advertising, the book blends the actions of the tobacco industry with the history of cancer research related to tobacco use, and the political reactions to both.
Golden Holocaust can be found on the New Book shelf on the Main floor of the Library. New books can be checked out for 2 weeks.
In addition, a discussion of the book can be found on C-SPAN.
