collecting investment e arningsFrom Publishers Weekly:
This carefully documented expose is an invaluable sourcebook not only for lawyers but for lay readers as well. As Brodeur, a New Yorker writer whose books include The Zapping of America and Expendable Americans, shows, media coverage of the disasters caused by asbestosis has traditionally been minimal. He pursues the behind-the-scenes efforts by key U.S. asbestos firms over some 50 years to challenge their liability for numbers of asbestos-workers' deaths. The legal intricacies presented by Brodeur may prove confusing to some readers, but they will, nonetheless, find his case histories compelling and devastating. The author often focuses on the Mansville Company (formerly Johns-Mansville). Yet the evidence he introduces involves the industry at large: a trail of cover-ups going back to the 1930s, through Borel v. Fioreboardstyle in 1971 and the avalanche of lawsuits that case spawned, leading to Mansville's bankruptcy filing in 1982a move Brodeur interprets as connected to an industry-wide drive "to escape the full measure of its liability for the horror of asbestos disease."
