Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This is a paperbound reprint of a 1999 book, about which Book News wrote: This regional and personal biography begins when the author and his family moved to Grantsville, Utah for purposes of small-town neighborliness and safety. Tales began to circulate about local cases of cancer, birth defects, and respiratory problems, spurring a seven- year search that uncovered a history of ecocide and caused Ward to organize opposition to hazardous waste disposal, chemical weapons incineration, industrial pollution, and nuclear waste storage. Ward manages Utah's public library development program and is an activist in several environmental organizations. Neither index nor notes accompany this less academic addition to Verso's more scholarly Haymarket Series.
