Summary

''Karen Silkwood, an employee of the Kerr-McGee plutonium processing plant, was killed in a car crash on her way to deliver important documents to a newspaper reporter in 1974. Silkwood was a union activist concerned about health and safety issues at the plant, and her death at age twenty-eight was considered by many to be highly suspicious.'' ''The issues this book explores - whistle-blowers, worker safety, the environment, and nuclear vulnerability - have not lost their relevance today, twenty-six years after Silkwood's white Honda Civic was found trapped in a concrete culvert near Oklahoma City.'' ''This second edition includes a new foreword, preface, and three short chapters that explore what has been learned about Silkwood since the book's original publication, explain what happened to the various actors in the drama, and discuss the long-term effects of the events around Silkwood's death.''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
