Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This book is a fascinating, well researched examination of how the oil industry, government regulators, and the public as a whole have dealt with the pollution problems associated with the production of petroleum in the U.S. over the past one hundred years. Gorman's thoughtful analysis dispels the myth that the oil industry did nothing to abate its pollution prior to the enactment of tough federal pollution regualtions in the 1970's while providing insight into the complex web of technological, economic, and political factors that constrained these early, largely voluntary efforts. ---Christine Rosen, University of California, Berkeley
Gorman's work is the first to treat systematically a single industry's environmental endeavors and it will stand as a landmark in that respect. But it is not just an environmental history. By infusing business and technological concerns throughout the narrative, Professor Gorman offers an exceptionally well-rounded view of an industry. ---Craig Colten, Louisiana State University --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
