Description:
'Akhmatove believed that she and [Isaiah] Berlin between them has started the Cold War. He remained sceptical, but Gyorgy Dalos....argues in this fascinating book that in one sense she was right. In 1945 the Soviet government needed to reassert control over citizens who had begun to elude its grip during the relatively liberal War years. Stalin's instinct recognized Akhmatova's unexpected visitor as the perfect pretext...[but] over the nest two decades, Akhmsyobs's transformed an ignominious defeat into another triumph.' -Hilary Spurling, The Daily TelegraphTranslated from the German by Antony Wood.

In these histories we learn that America officials ignored warnings about the dangers of lead in gasoline in the 1920's; why China is now a leading producer of CFC-free refrigerators; and how activists were able to stop Canada's commercial seal hunt in the 1980's but are unable to do so now. The author proposes a guiding principle of 'balanced consumption' for both consumers and corporations.316 pages, notes, references, index.
