BOOK SIGNING & DISCUSSION
David Zierler, author of The Invention of Ecocide:
 Agent Orange, Vietnam, and the Scientists Who Changed the Way We Think about the Environment
As the public increasingly questioned the war in Vietnam, a group of American scientists deeply concerned about the use of Agent Orange and other herbicides started a movement to ban what they called “ecocide.” Incorporating in-depth interviews, unique archival collections, and recently declassified national security documents, Zierler examines the movement to ban ecocide as it played out amid the rise of a global environmental consciousness and growing disillusionment with the containment policies of the cold war era.
