Summary
"In the summer of 1978, residents of Love Canal, a suburban development in Niagara Falls, NY, began protesting against the leaking toxic waste dump in their midst--a sixteen-acre site containing 100,000 barrels of chemical waste that anchored their neighborhood. The Love Canal protest movement inaugurated the era of grassroots environmentalism, spawning new anti-toxics laws and new models of ecological protest. Historian Richard S. Newman examines the Love Canal crisis through the area's boarder landscape, detailing the way this ever-contentious region has been used, altered, and understood from the colonial era to the present day."--Inside cover
