Tobacco USA: the industry behind the smoke curtain
The tobacco industry has long been among the most powerful in the United States. From the 1950s through the 1980s, while thousands of scientific studies showed cigarettes to be addictive and potentially lethal, tobacco executives insisted there was no proof their product was harmful. Bolstered by huge profits, cigarette companies continued to market aggressively, shout down health warnings, and pour money into lawmakers' campaign coffers to buy influence. Book jacket.
