"[A] fascinating and thoughtful study of the asbestos industry...a valuable addition to an already large literature. By globalizing the asbestos story, the authors reveal the tactics that have protected the industry for decades from sustained, intense criticism, and they clarify the challenges that remain in defending the victims whose lives have been irreparably damaged and in protecting us all from the threat of future injuries by this industry."--Business History Review
