1 Feshbach, Murray & Friendly, Alfred Ecocide In The USSR - Health and Nature Under Siege
London Aurum Press 1992 1854102303 / 9781854102300 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with a near Fine dustacket which is price clipped. 376 pages. Coloured map endpapers. An original and troubling account of the decline and fall of the world's second superpower and not since the harrowing accounts of the famines and purges of the Stalin era has so much new and damning information been brought together to expose the monumental brutality bhind the Soviet cause. The authors point out that the physical and human degradation was brought about by the force, not the failure, of the Communists' Utopian ambitions. Untrammelled power has produced an ecological and human disaster of biblical proportions, the consequences of which will be endured for generatins to come. The facts speak for themselves with 103 cities and a population of 70 million that suffer atmospheric pollution that exceeds safe levels by a factor of five, 75 % of surface water is contaminated by one or more pollutants, the rivers Volga and Don have been reduced to chemical sewers, two thirds of the Aral Sea has become an arid, sterile desert and the ecosystems of the Black and Caspian Seas may be damaged beyond repair. One lake near Chelyabinsk has been so polluted by waste from a military installation that it contained 24 times as much radioactive material as was released at Chernobyl. A most erudite work with map endpapers showing the problems and other maps in the text.
