DDT, Agent Orange, and asbestos are just some of the many frightening examples used in this book to illustrate how people s disastrous decisions impact human life. Along with compelling main text and arresting historical photographs, sidebars of harrowing statistics help readers understand the scope of the damage more fully. Each spread also includes a fact box that tells the lasting effects of each disaster and chronicles the legal changes made and not made in the wake of these events. This book concludes with a discussion of what work still needs to be done to reverse and prevent chemical disasters.
