Maysilles's "Ducktown Smoke" Reviewed

A brief review of Duncan Maysilles's Ducktown Smoke, recently published by the University of North Carolina Press, has appeared in a "CultureLab," a column of the New Scientist "where books, arts and science collide"."  The review commences:
Ducktown is part of poor America. Home to just 400 people, it is tucked in the south-eastern corner of Tennessee, not far from Chattanooga. Yet a century ago this tiny town made legal history - for the environmental showdown over "Ducktown smoke."  As Duncan Maysilles shows, it was the battle that made US environmental law pretty much from scratch.
