Editorial Reviews


This is the first account, in any language, which covers the controversies surrounding the infamous mercury poisoning in Minamata in southern Kyushu over the time frame of ninety years, from the founding of the factory which caused the pollution, up to the settlement for compensation reached in 1995...George's monograph provides an excellent point of departure for further inquiries. (Anja Osiander Social Science Journal 2002-02-01)
