Our lives depend on these relationships -- and are imperiled by them as well.

Brett Walker examines startling case studies of industrial toxins that know no boundaries: deaths from insecticide contaminations; poisonings from copper, zinc, and lead mining; congenital deformities from methylmercury factory effluents; and lung diseases from sulfur dioxide and asbestos.This powerful, probing book demonstrates how the Japanese archipelago has become industrialized over the last two hundred years -- and how people and the environment have suffered as a consequence., 4897, Japan, 4884, Asia, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 52192011, Pollution, 13735, Environmental, 227541, Civil & Environmental, 173515, Engineering, 173507, Engineering & Transportation, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13529, Ecology, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13598, Environmental Science, 13592, Earth Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16244611, Historic, 13602, Geography, 13592, Earth Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16311191, Medicine, 11288, Sociology, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
