This monograph explains, by means of a detailed study of the Thames in the nineteenth century, how medical men, "environmentalists" and governments identified and refined the "problem of pollution" in the new urban-industrial society.
This is a multidisciplinary study which will be of interest to social historians, historians of science and those concerned with London's past and future. It will also be of use to postgraduates embarking on research into the history of disease and to undergraduate students working on the Victorian city.
