This is one of the best books I've ever read and helped me understand some of the impact on the people of Bhopal, India, who suffered the consequences of Union Carbide's chemical explosion and its on-going refusal to take responsibility for it or for the pollution from the plant. According to Amnesty Internationl, "UCC continues to refuse to appear before the court in Bhopal to face trial and the Indian Supreme Court-endorsed final settlement has left survivors living in penury." Dow, which took over UCC in 2001, continues to shamelessly promote the "voluntary self-regulation" of the industry" and, unbelievably, points to Bhopal as an example. Animal's People tells the unforgettable story of what industry self-regulation really means.
