Rarely does a single book alter the course of history, but Rachel Carson's Silent Spring did exactly that. The outcry that followed its publication in 1962 forced the government to ban DDT and spurred revolutionary changes in the laws affecting our air, land, and water. Instrumental in launching the environmental movement, Carson's book is without question one of the landmark books of the twentieth century.
