“A champion for workers’ safety.”
—The New York Times
Dr. David Michaels is an epidemiologist and professor at the George Washington University School of Public Health. He served as President Obama’s Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health (2009-2017), the longest serving in OSHA's history, and under President Clinton was Assistant Secretary of Energy for Environment, Safety and Health (1998-2001) charged with protecting workers, residents and the environment around US nuclear weapons facilities.
THE TRIUMPH OF DOUBT
“David Michaels lays bare the dark money and the corporate science racket that kept the lethalities of tobacco, asbestos, lead, silica, pesticides, and scores of other life- and health-destroying products on the market and in the workplace, escaping the reach of the law. . . . This book is written to get you angry enough to want to learn how to defend yourselves, your communities, and our vulnerable planet. Let it grip you toward detection and defiance.”
