This volume uses three case studies involving the dangers of lead, coal, and asbestos to explore the role of scientists in the discovery and regulation of occupational hazards. The cases draw upon detailed historical evidence, and illustrate the factors and conditions that make possible--or deter--the development of responsible, ethical behavior on the part of scientists and engineers.
