Full Body Burden by Kristen Iversen
Copies of Full Body Burden will be available this summer at Cabell Library on the Monroe Park Campus and Tompkins-McCaw Library on the MCV Campus.
From Naomi Wolk, Guardian (UK):
"Iversen's reporting, extensive interviews, and review of FBI and EPA documents, shows how classifying a toxic nuclear site led to the ruin of hundreds of lives--and continues to pose ever-escalating threats as the legacy of what we know about such nuclear contamination is being swept under the rug by developers, energy lobbyists and government agencies colluding with them, at the risk of exposing more of us, more severely."
Since 2006, VCU's Reading Programs have introduced students to the academic and intellectual culture of VCU through a common reading experience. VCU Libraries Resource Guides include links to interviews, articles and items on reserve at VCU Libraries.
