Recounts the various ways that people have tried to cope with disposing of human waste and keeping themselves clean throughout history, and describes how people in Third World countries handle the problem today.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Buckets, commodes, chamberpots, water closets, latrines, pits, pans, and outhouses are all part of the history of toilets. Unplugged! details the evolution of toilets, tells what happens to sewage when it goes down the drain, what was done to prevent bacteria and disease when there was no piped water supply, and how sewage can be recycled. Unplugged! shows that it wasn't always a clean-air zone in the days before flushing toilets.
