Richard P. Wedeen. Presents a historical examination of lead poisoning from antiquity through the 20th century & its impact on manís political, social, & medical life. The role of lead as an environmental & social poison reaches far back into the ages, leaving clues for archaeologists, social scientists, & students of art. The chief concern here is with unraveling the effects of lead on the kidneys. Deals with historical as well as contemporary evidence -- fantasy as well as fact. Shows that the adulteration of wine with lead was responsible for much of the mythology surrounding gout. Discusses wine mystiques created by poets & philosophers, preachers & satirists. 57 b&w illustrations.
