This chronicle of the multifaceted Bhopal campaign against two of the world’s most powerful chemical corporations, Union Carbide and Dow Chemical Co. (which now owns Union Carbide), parallels the emergence of public understanding of environmental safety and corporate accountability that Bhopal helped to create.Written at the 20th anniversary, the Reader includes primary source documents of this evolution. In 1984, the deadly pesticide used in Bhopal and in the United States was hailed by agro-business as part of its “revolution.”
