Overview

Everyone knows that tobacco is a heavily regulated industry. But it hasn't always been that way. The road to regulation has been a long one, with twists and turns that are on the level of the best Hollywood blockbuster. Putting Out the Fire: Smoking and the Law tells the story of the many attempts-those that failed and those that succeeded-to regulate the tobacco industry. The author describes the reasons behind regulation. Readers will learn about the industry's attempts to keep their findings secret and how they tried to "spin" negative research findings into either positive, or at least less damaging, reports. The government's relationship to tobacco is a complex one. Putting Out the Fire: Smoking and the Law examines the government role and how it has affected tobacco regulation.
