Re: Esposito on Grayzel, 'The Age of the Gas Mask: How British Civilians Faced the Terror of Total War'

Hi Michael,

Thanks for sending these recommendations along. I wasn't previously aware of the Thiel reading. The text is available online via my library. I just read through it. It looks like will be extremely useful. The Rossi reading isn't available near me, but I ordered a copy from my local bookseller to receive it by mail.

Re: Esposito on Grayzel, 'The Age of the Gas Mask: How British Civilians Faced the Terror of Total War'

For those interested in the subject of gas masks in Germany, I would add Peter Thompson's work.

Here is an early article:
Peter Thompson (2017) The chemical subject: phenomenology and German encounters with the gas mask in the World War I, History and Technology, 33:3, 249-271, DOI: 10.1080/07341512.2018.1449712

The book form of his 2021 University of Illinois dissertation is coming out as
The Gas Mask in Interwar Germany: Visions of Chemical Modernity (Cambridge University Press, forthcoming April 2023)
