Deceit and denial : the deadly politics of industrial pollution by Gerald E Markowitz( Book )

29 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deceit and denial details the attempts by the chemical and lead industries to deceive Americans about the dangers that their deadly products present to workers, the public, and consumers. Gerald Markowitz and David Rosner pursued evidence steadily and relentlessly, interviewed the important players, investigated untapped sources, and uncovered a bruising story of cynical and cruel disregard for health and human rights. This resulting expos ̌is full of startling revelations, provocative arguments, and disturbing conclusions--all based on remarkable research and information gleaned from secret industry documents. This book reveals for the first time the public relations campaign that the lead industry undertook to convince Americans to use its deadly product to paint walls, toys, furniture, and other objects in America's homes, despite a wealth of information that children were at risk for serious brain damage and death from ingesting this poison. This book highlights the immediate dangers ordinary citizens face because of the relentless failure of industrial polluters to warn, inform, and protect their workers and neighbors. It offers a historical analysis of how corporate control over scientific research has undermined the process of proving the links between toxic chemicals and disease. The authors also describe the wisdom, courage, and determination of workers and community members who continue to voice their concerns in spite of vicious opposition. Readable, pathbreaking, and revelatory, Deceit and denial provides crucial answers to questions of dangerous environmental degradation, escalating corporate greed, and governmental disregard for its citizens' safety and health

Are we ready? : public health since 9/11 by David Rosner( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A contemporary history of a critical period, Are We Ready? analyzes the impact of 9/11, the anthrax attacks that followed, and preparations for a possible smallpox attack on the nation's public health infrastructure. David Rosner and Gerald Markowitz interviewed local, state, and federal officials to determine the immediate reactions of key participants in these events. The authors explore the extent to which these emergencies permanently altered the political, cultural, and organizational life of the country and consider whether the nation is now better prepared to withstand another potentially devastating attack. This well-reasoned and well-researched book presents compelling evidence that few with hands-on experience with disease and emergency preparedness believe that an adequate response to terrorism--whether biological, chemical, or radiological--is possible without a strong and vibrant infrastructure to provide everyday services as well as emergency responses

Moyers & company( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When industries release chemicals into the environment, putting profits before public health, children are the first to suffer-and nowhere is this more troubling than in the ongoing story of lead poisoning. In this edition of Moyers & Company, Bill talks with David Rosner and Gerald Markowitz, public health historians who've been taking on the chemical industry for decades despite industry efforts to undermine them. Bill is then joined by the heads of two independent government watchdog groups: Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics and OpenSecrets.org, and Danielle Brian, who runs POGO, the Project on Government Oversight. They talk with Bill about their efforts to scrutinize who's giving money, who's receiving it, and, most importantly, what's expected in return
