Editorial Reviews


"[T]his is a riveting account that can convey a better understanding of the complex influences of corporate-government interactions and the cost to health."--"Journal of the American Medical Association

From the Inside Flap

"Deceit and Denial...lays bare the truth about how every one of us in America is imperiled when powerful corporations forsake their responsibility to the public health. Rosner and Markowitz have combined the skills of historical research, investigative journalism, and scientific analysis to tell a story that should shake an industry and alert a nation."—Bill Moyers

"Deceit and Denial is a real public service in reminding all of us that fundamental to protecting our air, water, and the health of our communities and families is the public's right to know."—Carol M. Browner, Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency, 1933-2001

"This is an especially important book at a time when industry is increasingly sponsoring risk research, and 'voluntary' evaluation is the norm. And it is all the more important at a time when new bio-engineered products are being marketed with little understanding of long-term clinical and subclinical risks."—Dorothy Nelkin, coauthor of The DNA Mystique: The Gene as Cultural Icon and Body Bazaar: The Market for Human Tissue i nthe Biotechnology Age

"In this time of community health crises, appalling environmental disasters, and political dismay, Gerald Markowitz and David Rosner have given us an urgently needed, galvanizing, hopeful history of triumphant public activism against the greatest odds. In the face of corporate cruelty and lies, labor and community activists, lawyers, and historians stopped polluters and saved countless lives. This vivid, splendid book floodlights past abuses as it charts the road toward a healing, safer future."—Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of Eleanor Roosevelt
