Description


"By bringing Perkin into the open and documenting his life and work, Garfield has done a service to history."--Chicago Tribune "[A]n inviting cocktail of Perkin biography, account of the dye industry and where it led, and social and cultural history up to the present."--American Scientist "Garfield leaps gracefully back and forth in time, as comfortable in the Victorian past as he is in the brave new world of petrochemicals and biochemistry."--Kirkus Reviews starred review. "[T]he delight of this book is seeing parallels to present-day trends."--"New York Times Book Review
