About this title


Recounts the industrial accident in Bhopal India that claimed eight thousand lives, analyzes how Union Carbide handled the disaster, and discusses the legal, political, and social result's of the case

From Library Journal:

This stands out among the books on the chemical factory disaster that killed thousand in Bhopal, India in 1984. Kurzman concentrates less on the technical aspects of the accident and more on participants. There are accounts of childbirth, rescue from a funeral pyre, lingering medical symptoms, bureaucratic barriers, local corruption. The emphasis is always on the individual: a victim seeking compensation, an American lawyer seeking a bonanza, the Union Carbide chairman attempting to stave off bankruptcy, an Indian politician plying his trade. A gripping account of the world's worst industrial accident. Daniel LaRossa, Connetquot P.L., Bohemia, N.Y.
