E.G. Vallianatos discusses and signs Poison Spring

Vroman's Bookstore

695 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91101


For twenty-five years E.G. Vallianatos saw the EPA from the inside, with rising dismay over how pressure from politicians and threats from huge corporations were turning it from the public's watchdog into a "polluter's protection agency." Based on his own experience, the testimony of colleagues, and hundreds of documents collected  from inside the EPA, Poison Spring reveals how the agency has continually reinforced the chemical-industrial complex.  Vallianatos gives us a bleak insight to the organization that was set up to protect our environment, but has recently been failing in its mission.
