The Passionate Nonsmoker's Bill of Rights: The First Guide to Enacting Nonsmoking Legislation

Steve Allen, Author William Morrow & Company $0 (240p) ISBN 978-0-688-06295-8
Less than 30% of Americans still smoke and many states, municipalities and corporations have promulgated regulations curbing the right to smoke in public and workplaces. Concentrating on the dangers of indoor air pollution to nonsmokers, (or passive smokers), TV personality-writer Allen and Adler ( The Lottery Book ) inform readers on how to form nonsmokers rights groups and enact nonsmokers rights laws, including lobbying and enlisting celebrities as allies to battle the tobacco industry. But, while the authors aver that the aim of the nonsmokers rights movement is not ``to stop the production and consumption of cigarettes,'' they also argue that ``nothing short of the outright elimination'' of smoking will protect nonsmokers. The book is guaranteed to raise smokers' hackles. (Sept.)
