520    In the mid-1990s, residents of Anniston, Alabama, began a 
       legal fight against the agrochemical company Monsanto over
       the dumping of PCBs in the city's historically African 
       American and white working-class west side. Simultaneously,
       Anniston environmentalists sought to safely eliminate 
       chemical weaponry that had been secretly stockpiled near 
       the city during the Cold War. In this probing work, Ellen 
       Griffith Spears offers a compelling narrative of 
       Anniston's battles for environmental justice, exposing how
       systemic racial and class inequalities reinforced during 
       the Jim Crow era played out in these intense contemporary 
       social movements. Spears focuses attention on key figures 
       who shaped Anniston-from Monsanto's founders to white and 
       African American activists to the ordinary Anniston 
       residents whose lives and health were deeply affected by 
       the town's military-industrial history and the legacy of 
       racism. Situating the personal struggles and triumphs of 
       Anniston residents within a larger national story of 
       regulatory regimes and legal strategies that have affected
       toxic towns across America, Spears unflinchingly explores 
       the causes and implications of environmental inequalities,
       showing how civil rights movement activism undergirded 
       Anniston's campaigns for redemption and justice.
