Zusammenfassung
The advent of consumer societies in Britain and West Germany after 1945 led to mass 'production' of garbage. This book compares the social, cultural and economic fallout of the growing volume and changing composition of waste in the two countries from 1945 through changes in the business of handling household waste.
