In this history of the Food and Drug Administration, Philip J. Hilts analyzes the century-long, continuing struggle to establish scientific standards as the basis for policymaking on food and drugs. The agency, which emerged out of the era of the robber barons and Theodore Roosevelt's desire to "civilize capitalism," was created to stop the trade in adulterated meats and quack drugs. In addition to highlighting the essential role the FDA plays in making sure that food and drugs are safe and effective, "Protecting America's Health" shows that FDA regulation, far from stifling innovation--as critics feared--has actually accelerated it. "A genuinely important book, rich in history, accurate in detail, unflinching in analysis." --"The New Republic"" Hilts] writes with both a historian's attention to dissection and analysis and with the flourish and vividness of an experienced journalist aware of the drama inherent in the story he is telling.--"New York Times Book Review"
