Riassunto: The radioactive waste that was dispersed throughout the St. Louis area during the "Atomic Age" was a result of atomic weapons work carried out by Mallinckrodt Chemical Works for the U.S. government under secret contract. To date, there has been no comprehensive study of the secret contracting effort that made Mallinckrodt Chemical Works one of the most important contributors to the atomic bomb project, nor has there been an adequate discussion of the long-term consequences of this atomic program on the health and environment of the community. The purpose of this book is to provide an examination of the history and consequences of the atomic legacy of St. Louis and the Metro-East.
L'autore: Denise DeGarmo is Assistant Professor of Political Science at Southern Illinois University.
