More than two years after the Bhopal disaster, fatalities and illnesses in this central Indian city continue to be reported by U.S. media. Litigation involving Union Carbide still makes the front page. In this new book, Professor Wilkins offers a unique case study of news accounts of the worst industrial accident in history, combining a detailed review of media coverage with an analysis of public reaction to those reports.
