For the first time, the sad story of America's uranium miners and the duplicity of our government is revealed. This expert study examines, in microcosm, the political, legal, social, medical, engineering, and ethical problems that emerged when American leaders developed a nuclear arsenal to contain the USSR without considering the cost this could have on innocent lives. Ball provides the historical background for federal policies, medical reports, and legal battles that ensued leading up to the compensatory legislation in 1990. An apendix offers a federal report about three decades of radiation experiences on U.S. citizens. A bibliography defines primary and secondary source material of note.

From reviews of the first edition: "Nowhere else have the facts presented here ever been assembled in one place before.... This book ought to be placed in every library and newspaper office in the state. Still more, it could find a place in the high schools and universities in [several] courses: history, geography, government, environmental studies." ?Texas Observer Here is an environmental map of Texas for all concerned citizens and policymakers. Compiled by the Texas Center for Policy Studies, this almanac provides crucial and comprehensive information on the state's land, air, water, energy use, and waste generation gathered from a wide range of state and federal agencies, environmental organizations, and historical and scientific reference sources. The almanac is designed for quick, easy reference by the public, as well as by scientists and government officials and policymakers. Extensively updated since the first edition, it addresses such key issues as the quantity and quality of the state's environmental resources, present rates of consumption, and future levels of demand. This vital baseline information will help all Texans understand the current condition of our state's environmental health and plan for our future environmental well-being.
