BRAND NEW UNREAD COPY SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. Exposed is a collection of non-fiction articles blended with history, science, and politics that tell the true story of Libby, Montana: a small town exposed to toxic asbestos fibres from the W.R. Grace mine production during 1963 to 1990. The book covers other related topics such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and the characteristics of vermiculite and asbestos. W.R. Grace sold Zonolite Attic Insulation worldwide from 1963 to 1984. The company was indicted in February 2005 for several charges including wired fraud, Clean Air Act violations, and concealment of information about asbestos health hazards from Libby residents. W.R. Grace's trial, originally set for September 2006, has been postponed to the following year. This book is meant as an introduction to the asbestos issues and the W.R. Grace scandal. Exposed aims to bridge the gap between science and the lay reader, by producing a text that is simple and readable. Do you have Zonolite in your attic? Apparently millions of people do. In “Exposed,” Demetra Dimokopoulos tells the disturbing true story behind this once-popular product. Zonolite was produced by a company based in the small town of Libby, Montana. The company was a major local employer, offering security and good pay. But what the workers didn’t know—although the company itself did—was that they were working with a product contaminated with a toxic mineral: tremolite asbestos. When inhaled, tremolite fibres lodge in the lungs and can eventually develop into cancerous tumours. Those who worked with Zonolite usually came home covered in dust and so unknowingly exposed their families to the danger. In the 1970s, Dimokopoulos reports, Libby residents breathed in millions of asbestos fibres every day. Inevitably, some of them went on to develop the lung disease asbestosis while others now suffer from a rare cancer called mesothelioma. Dimokopoulos is a recent graduate of the University of Toronto, and “Exposed” is her first book. She recounts this public health disaster in a clear, journalistic writing style. She explains asbestos-related diseases without getting bogged down in medical details, and includes ghastly photos of diseased organs. For further information, there are some website addresses and many references. This short, thought-provoking book will likely leave you feeling outraged. How could a company dare to deceive its employees for so long? And how can we prevent such a tragedy from ever happening again? Reviewed by Julie Falkner, Allbooks Review

Soft Cover

Appears UNREAD! Just hint of edgewear and faint age toning of pages, otherwise pristine! From the publisher:"Learn the innermost secrets of the holiest name of God and how you can use the secrets for magic, personal development, and spirituality, when you get Tetragrammaton by Donald Tyson. In Ceremonial Magic and Jewish tradition, the "Tetragrammaton" is composed of four Hebrew letters and is the occult key that unlocks the meaning behind astrology, the Tarot, the mysteries of the Jewish Bible, the Kabbalah, the Enochian magic of John Dee, and much more. In Tetragrammaton, Tyson shows that it is nothing less than the archetypal blueprint of creation, the basis for such fundamental forms as the DNA double helix and the binary language of modern computers. Never before has such explicit information about this name of God been revealed. Now you will learn: ·The complete history of the Tetragrammaton, including its meaning and use in the kabbalah ·The correct vibration of the name to evoke its power, and the use of the commanding voice ·The ancient lost methods of divination by Urim and Thummim ·The role of the Tetragrammaton in empowering the magical ring of King Solomon ·New English versions of the Enochian Keys ·The real meaning behind the collection of twelve stones from the River Jordan by representatives of the twelve tribes of Israel ·An entirely new order of Banner angels In the past, the use of the Tetragrammaton has been hinted at only in obscure religious and alchemical emblems. Now, for the first time, its true structure is laid bare in a clear and unambiguous manner, allowing this potent key to open astounding vistas of understanding. Tetragrammaton is a book for Kabbalists, ritual occultists, and anyone fascinated by the magic of the Bible. If you want to understand the deepest secrets of God, get Tetragrammaton. "
