MEDIA REVIEWS

'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
