An Air That Kills
How the Asbestos Poisoning of Libby, Montana, Uncovered a National Scandal
by Andrew Schneider and David McCumber
 
This is the horrifying true story of the decades-long poisoning of a small town and the definitive exposé of asbestos in America -- all told by the prize-winning journalists who broke it.


This is the story of miners who were unaware of the toxins they took into their lungs, then brought home in their clothes-infecting their families. 

It is the story of the ongoing use of asbestos in products ranging from insulation to cat litter. 

It is the story behind the George W. Bush administration's successful campaign to cover up the full extent of the post-9/11 asbestos problem in Lower Manhattan. 

But it is also the story of the townspeople and government workers who took on the government in Washington to demand justice for those who died -- and those who are still dying -- of preventable exposure to asbestos. .
