Summary
"Proctor began this book after discovering documents showing that the Nazis conducted the most aggressive antismoking campaign in modern history. Further research revealed that Hitler's government passed a wide range of public health measures, including restrictions on asbestos, radiation, pesticides, and food dyes. ... Proctor shows that cancer also became an important social metaphor, as the Nazis portrayed Jews and other 'enemies of the Volk' as tumors that must be eliminated from the German body politic"--provided by publisher
