About the book

This book tells the reader in popular form just what dust and gaseous impurities consist of how they originate in metallurgical works, what a grave dan­ger they are to all living things on the Earth, and how man protects himself and his habitat from them. A picture is drawn of the future when metallurgy will be free of dust and harmful gases. Original drawings supplement this interesting narrative. The book is intended for general public.

There are some fantastic illustrations in the book.

The book was translated from the Russian by Y. Nadler and was published by Mir in 1984.

Many thanks to Guptaji for the cover of the book. He had generously given the cover when I had visited his library some years back. Note that pages 151-154 are missing.
