Chloroform - the quest for oblivion, Stratmann, Linda
8 Stratmann, Linda Chloroform - the quest for oblivion
Thrupp, Stroud. Sutton Publishing Limited 2003 0750930985 / 9780750930987 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Good 
Illustrated,small octavo, pp xiv, 258, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [Right up until the 19th century, physicians and philosophers regarded sleep as a state of near-oblivion in which there was no mental activity, a kind of halfway stage between wakefulness and death. For the Victorians, therefore, when anaesthesia was first practised, it was commonly seen as traumatic - for doctors were being asked to induce a condition looked upon as partial death. Viewed with suspicion, many feared that they would never wake again, or that they would lose their faculties on a permanent basis, even become insane. Yet, especially after Queen Victoria allowed its administration to her during childbirth, its use to block out pain became widespread. Tracing the social, medical and criminal history of chloroform, this book looks at early medical practices to create oblivion through the discovery of chloroform and its use and misuse in the 19th century, to the present. Today chloroform is no longer used as an anaesthetic, but has a multitude of uses in industry and medical research, including a role in DNA profiling. A by-product of the chlorination of water, we inhale infinitesimal amounts of chloroform every time we have a shower.]

The book serves as a core text for the new university and college courses (e.g. MBA) on 'environmental ethics' and 'corporate and social responsibility'. Foreword by the recent Chairman of the UK Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution, with contributions ranging from the Canadian Federal Government, a Local Agenda 21 case-study (UK local government), and Professor H. George Frederickson (USA) on 'Social Equity between Generations'. The book also analyses original case-studies, such as 'The Bhopal Gas Disaster' (India) and 'Industrial Quarrying in the Yorkshire Dales' (UK). The book is an indispensable guide to 'best practice' and for educational and training courses, containing references to practices in the UK, the USA, Canada, India and Japan, as well as the EC Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS).]
