Industrial accidents occur all over the world at an alarming rate, and readers have no doubt heard of at least one in their lifetime. This topical book chronicles the frightening stories of several of the world s worst examples of chemical leaks and spills, detailing the environmental impact not only in the text, but also through graphic, full-color images, and through sidebars full of real statistics. Fact boxes chronicle the legal response in the direct wake of disasters like Bhopal, Amoco Cadiz, Exxon Valdez, Deepwater Horizon, and more. The book closes with a note about activism and how to help.
