About this book

If the chemical industry has provided enormous material benefits, equally the costs have been enormous, even catastrophic. Moreover, both costs and benefits are distributed in an unequal manner. Of particular concern in this text is the development of an adequate understanding of how both the positive and negative effects of the industry are produced and also what determines how the benefits and costs are distributed. Currently, the destructive nature of the industry - the death, injury, ill-health, and environmental devastation which it causes - remains particularly poorly recognized and challenged.
