About the Book
This book reveals how action and inaction impact the most vulnerable citizens. It shares how human understanding is not static, and changes over time, as in the case of our knowledge about lead and the spread of disease. Furthermore, What the Eyes Don’t See directs readers to consider how collective human learning and the knowledge of the wider world can be harnessed and applied in advocacy for the betterment of individuals, societies, and the natural world.
