Trash Talks

Revelations in the Rubbish

Elizabeth V. Spelman

  • Offers a detailed portrait of the surprisingly intimate connections we maintain with what we toss away
  • Takes a unique approach to the problem of waste, so often viewed solely through the lens of its impact on the health of humans and the environment
  • Assembles and sifts through the work of US Supreme Court Justices, archaeologists, narcotics agents, psychoanalysts, philosophers, fiction writers, sanitation workers, economists, and evolutionary theorists
