Abstract:  The dangerous toxic throwaways generated by Western industry are expensive to deal with and dumping them in countries desperate for convertible currency is a convenient way of putting them out of mind. This book describes the ways in which the very idea of "waste" needs re-examination as well as revealing the scale of such scandalous practices.
