War On Waste: Can America Win Its Battle with Garbage

Robert Gottlieb and Louis Blumberg

1989, Island Press

War On Waste takes us behind the scenes of one of the most important environmental debates of the century involving politicians, businesses, and citizen activists. This is not just the story of how we let garbage get out of control, but about how politics and industry conspired to lead our society into a major environmental gridlock. The story details the conflicts between activists and an environmental gridlock. The story details the conflict between activists and an entrenched waste industry. In the battle over garbage, War On Waste tells us who the players are and what’s at stake. The authors, Louis Blumberg and Robert Gottlieb, look beyond the visible symptoms of the problem and provide an in-depth analysis of the roots of the waste disposal crisis.
