About the Author:

Stephen Mosley is senior lecturer in history at Leeds Metropolitan University. His research interests are in urban culture and environmental history.

Review:

'The great strength of Stephen Mosley's The Chimney of the World is its melding of environmental and cultural history, which lends an added dimension to his rich and original study' - Matthew Osborn, Business History Review

 

'This is a joy to read, often unearthing some of the more suprising attitudes to smoke emissions, for example the once popular belief that sulphurous acid in coal acted as a disinfectant, purifying town air ... [The book] establishes itself as not only a leader within the discipline of British urban environmental history, but as a benchmark for others to follow.' - Jodie Thorne, Albion Reviews of Books

 

'Mosley has given us a beautifully crafted and well-researched book, a pioneering contribution that should certainly be considered required reading for urban environmental historians'. - Christopher Hamlin, University of Notre Dame
