Explains how dyes were developed, how they have been used throughout history and discusses the history and folklore surrounding different colors.

In Dyes: from Sea Snails to Synthetics, Kassinger covers the history of dyes from early times to the present. She also relates some of the myths associated with dyes and explains the science behind their production and use.
