1 BLOCK, ALAN A. and, SCARPITTI, FRANK R. Poisoning for profit. The Mafia and toxic waste in America.
New York William Morrow & Co. 1985 0688039707 / 9780688039707 Hard Cover 
361 pages, cloth, dust jacket frayed otherwise very good. 1st edition. From the dj: This year American industry will generate 150 million metric tons of toxic waste. Of this, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 10 percent will be disposed of legally and safely. Poisoning for Profit describes where the rest will end up. Industrial poisons will find their way to our sewers, lakes, our garbage dumps, and our playgrounds. Oil delivery services will lace home heating oil with dioxin; trucks will discharge it on our highways, in abandoned coil mines, in our national parks. A combination of staggering profits, lethal contaminants, and powerful Mafia syndicates is creating an environmental time bomb and the most horrific crime story of this century. Poisoning for Profit brings together for the first time information from the many undercover investigations, hearings, taped conversations, confessions and suppressed official reports, providing the most comprehensive and shocking expose of the appalling power of the Mafia in the lucrative black market service of toxic waste dumping.
