The Polluters

The Making of Our Chemically Altered Environment

Benjamin Ross and Steven Amter

  • Traces back the roots of current environmental problems and shows they were understood far earlier than most people believe and industry will admit
  • Demonstrates that many crucial decisions that allowed pollution were not caused by lack of knowledge or mistakes, but were the outcome of political conflicts in which economic interests prevailed
  • Reveals new documents showing that industries knew of toxic hazards long before the public
