Poisons are everywhere - in the environment, the office, at home. They have been used to cure and kill. In this book, a noted science writer tells the story of poisons, their uses and their users in history and literature. From Nero to Wainwright, from the death of Socrates to Hamlet, Macinnis discusses the sources, history, and lore of poisons as well as the scientific analysis and their uses in medicine, terrorism, and cosmetics. (This book may contain a sharpie mark on the top or bottom edge and may show mild signs of shelfwear.)
