Booklist Review

Every citizen ought to read this book, though few will enjoy the read: more than 200 pages of relentless frustration with governments and corporations. Love Canal is a Niagara Falls neighborhood built over a toxic waste dump. When residents complained of life-threatening maladies, they were met with apathy, waffling, empty promises, and downright resistance. Gibbs, formerly a shy blue-collar mother and homemaker, organized the neighbors and was thrust into the position of political activist. She now heads the Center for Health, Environment and Justice. The Love Canal residents' group won the right to relocation with government disaster funding. Their struggle opened many citizens' eyes to the problems of toxic waste and government and corporation collusion. This version of Gibbs' 1982 book has a foreword by Ralph Nader and an added chapter about the state's recent plan to resettle Love Canal--as questionable as the earlier dismissal of residents' complaints. The new residents should read this book to learn what to expect when fighting to protect their rights. (Reviewed April 15, 1998)0865713839Kevin Grandfield
