NCAP welcomes Benjamin Ross, co-author of The Polluters, for three nights of discussion. Attendance is FREE...so bring friends.

The Polluters sets out to illuminate the close relationship between chemical industry, pollution and government as it took shape over the 20th century. Building on the idea of regulatory capture, the book presents a detailed look at the penetrating influence that the chemical industry has had upon those who would seek to regulate it. It also unveils the roots of the American movement to protect the environment and public health. Often traced to the 1960s and 1970s, Ross shows that the movement actually extends as far back as 1901 and the Teddy Roosevelt administration.

In the words of Lois Gibbs, The Polluters is, "...a must for any activist who wants to understand the strategies these polluters used to continue business as usual."
