Here is the first balanced assessment of opposition by community groups to scientific and technological projects seen to offer hazards to their communities. Charles Piller shows how ecological disasters and technological breakdowns have robbed Americans of their faith in the beneficence of technology, and he offers a guide for achieving meaningful public involvement in scientific and technological decision-making.
