For three years now smoking has been banned from all enclosed public places in England. In an event for the Manchester Science Festival, Carsten Timmermann of the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine will talk about six decades of concern surrounding the dangers associated with cigarette smoke: the epidemiology and the politics. He will discuss who smoked and who quit, and why it has taken so long to ban smoking.
